It is with deep regret to advise that Mr. Jamil M. Qureshi (Honorary Vice president & Consultant) of United Shipping (USTCS) Kuwait, recently passed away in Pakistan. Jamil was a very dear friend to me and many of our members over a long period of time. He was a founding member of PPG, always a huge and active supporter and always the consummate gentleman and a wise mentor. Jamil served UTCS for 43 years. He started his carrier in Kuwait with Al Kazemi International Commercial Group as Claim Handling Executive and build up his carrier to the Position of Vice President of the Group. He was a well-respected veteran and personality in the global shipping industry. We wish Jamil’s family, friends, colleagues and global associates our deepest condolences.
