I am delighted to announce that we have hired Ralph Desveaux as Director of Business Development for Nicom Maritime. Ralph is a veteran of the IT industry, with past experience in exporting software solutions throughout the world.

At one time, there was a lot of talk about spam. The term “spam” comes from the canned meats of the same name, and in 1970 the British comedy group Monty Python did a sketch in which diners were served Spam with practically every meal. The term was thus adopted to describe electronic messages that are sent randomly to a large number of people.

Last month Halifax hosted the annual conference of the American Association of Port Authorities and wasn’t it a first class event! The Cunard Centre was packed with delegates from throughout North America, and from as far away as Brazil and Africa, for a week of business sessions and Maritime hospitality.
