Capt. Howard brings to LISCR over 26 years of experience as an officer in the United States Coast Guard. Before his retirement Capt.

“I am very happy to announce that Captain Todd Howard has joined our team of dedicated maritime experts here at the Liberian Registry. He brings to the Registry decades of hands-on maritime safety and regulatory experience and expertise,” said LISCR´s Chief Operations Officer Alfonso Castillero.

“This is what sets us apart from the other Registries, we have the best professionals supporting our vessel owners, operators, and seafarers. Having Capt.
