UWI Alumna Claudia Grant “sails” forth!

Thirty-four years after starting her career at the Port of Kingston in 1986, Claudia Grant is now second in command at the Maritime Authority of Jamaica (MAJ), serving as Deputy Director General.  She entered the field after she graduated from The UWI with a Bachelor’s Degree in Management Studies.

She remained there for three and one-half years, leaving in 1990 for the World Maritime University (WMU) in Malmo, Sweden, to read for a Master’s Degree in Port and Shipping Administration. She returned to Jamaica after graduating from WMU and then went to work with the CARICOM Secretariat in Guyana. While at CARICOM, she oversaw the implementation of policies and projects for the sustainable development of maritime transportation in member states. She then returned to Jamaica as Director of Marine Transport. Then she moved over to the Maritime Authority, which was the forerunner to the Maritime Authority of Jamaica (MAJ), which officially began operations in April 2001 under the Shipping Act. She served the interim body as Senior Director and was appointed Deputy Director General of the MAJ. She is also the  founding President of the Women in Maritime Association Caribbean (WIMAC), which brings focus to the work of women in the male-dominated field.
