Dave Bedwell is officially retiring from his position as Executive Vice President of China Ocean Shipping (Canada) Inc. on September 1st. Dave was part of the management team that established China Ocean Shipping (Canada) Inc. in Canada in 1994 and is well know throughout industry as he has been a true champion for the ocean carriers. He will be retiring from his position as Vice Chair of the Chamber of Shipping, after serving 13 on its Board of Directors and he will also be stepping down from the BC Maritime Employers Association's Board of Directors where he has served for several years. His presence will be missed at the boardroom table and of course at our local golf tournaments, but no doubt the grass will be greener in Kelowna. Congratulations!
