For the 7th year in a row, Dr Sharma receives acknowledgement for his contribution in the maritime community and his special focus on Green recycling. Dr Anil Sharma, President & CEO of GMS, ranked at number 63 in the annual Lloyd’s List top 100 of the Most Influential People in Shipping for 2017. He has a Doctorate degree from a US Business school and has dedicated the last 25 years of his career building the GMS brand across the world. Today the company operates from 8 countries: USA, UAE, Greece, Germany, Japan, Singapore, China & South Korea and through several representative offices in Turkey and South Asia. The company continues to expand rapidly with the addition of new offices almost every year.
GMS is the world’s largest buyer of ships and offshore assets for recycling and was founded by Dr Sharma in 1992, in Cumberland, USA.
Dr Sharma commented that “I am truly honoured to receive acknowledgement from a high profiled media outlet such as The Lloyd’s List for the 8th time in a row! Being featured in their Top 100 List as a pioneer in Green recycling in the shipping industry, enhances the immense responsibility I feel to serve our clients in the most efficient and meaningful manner whilst continuing our Green Team’s work investing in the education and support of the South Asian ship recycling yards and their workforce. In an industry mired with misleading and biased information, GMS has done its best to bring transparency, facilitate dialogue, promote change and encourage responsible ship recycling. We are proud to be part of an industry that has evolved and adds true value to the shipping fraternity. I personally thank all of our clients for their trust and custom over the past two decades and I am looking forward to another year of evolution and leadership!”
