Peter Cook

Security Association for the Maritime Industry (SAMI)

Peter Cook

Since launching the Security Association for the Maritime Industry (SAMI) in 2011, Peter Cook's work for the Association has continued at pace and in 2013 Peter heads up a global trade association with over 180 member companies from 37 countries.

Peter is a regular attendee at conferences and has most recently participated at events in Dubai, Hamburg, India, the Oman and across the UK, including the International Institute of Strategic Studies (IISS) and Chatham House.

As CEO of SAMI, Peter represents the Association and its members at International level meetings with global organisations and businesses. Peter regularly visitis SAMI member companies and strategic industry partners in the UK and across the world.

Peter has a continuing role as a Lecturer for the MA in Maritime Security at Greenwich University and also sits on the Advisory Board of the Greenwich Maritime Institute.

The media interest in maritime security issues and the development of SAMI is quite insatiable and Peter is regularly interviewed by the trade and international press and has conducted a number or live television news interviews for programmes screened across the world.

In September 2012 the SAMI Team were awarded "Newsmaker of the Year" by Lloyd's List (the leading daily newspaper for the maritime industry).

In January 2013, Peter was recognised by Lloyd's List as number 19 in their Top 100 most influential people in shipping, which is quite an achievement.
