“Our success is a testament to our valued clients, partners, and highly skilled and dedicated seafarers and employees, who remain the pillars of our past achievements and the impetus for our next chapter of growth.” 
“As we celebrate our 30th anniversary, we are steering toward a horizon filled with new opportunities, bolstered by a legacy of excellence and a commitment to technology and innovation. Our ship is set for the future, guided by the lessons of the past and the optimism for what lies ahead.” 
“During the transition, we will remain squarely and resolutely committed to the delivery of industry-leading service to our customers, partners, seafarers and all of those who rely on us. Our succession planning and transitional steps have been designed to ensure there are no interruptions to service levels.” 
Dr Kishore Rajvanshy stated: “As I prepare to pass the baton to the next generation, I am confident that the company's future is bright and that it will continue to set industry standards for years to come. This is a landmark strategic move to mark our 30th anniversary year, to build on our rock-solid foundations and take the company to the next level.” 
Mr Angad Banga, who will co-lead FLEET during the transition period and oversee the new management team under the mentorship of Dr Banga and Dr Rajvanshy, brings a wealth of experience across the maritime industry and a strong respect for the company's history.  He joined his father at The Caravel Group a decade ago, is the current Chairman of the Hong Kong Shipowners Association and rotational Chairman of the Asian Shipowners Association, and has served actively as a FLEET board director for a number of years. 
"I am driven to build on the robust legacy established by my father, Dr Harry Banga, and Dr Rajvanshy, in working with our colleagues, partners and investing in FLEET to meet our clients’ needs now and into the future, " Mr Banga said. 
“Our company stands at the intersection of tradition and innovation. Leading our extraordinary team is a privilege, and we stand poised to continue to lead safety standards, embrace innovation and pursue new opportunities to serve our clients and the broader industry.”
