He was previously managing director at global corporate and fiduciary services provider AMICORP, where he was head of institutional sales for the Americas, Latin America and Asia.

Perea has nearly 25 years’ experience in business development and operations in the financial and corporate services sector, with a particular focus on wealth management, as well as trust and corporate and fiduciary services. 

Scott Bergeron, Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry (LISCR) CEO, the US-based manager of the Liberian Registry, said, “We are delighted that Anthony has agreed to join LISCR. He has all the qualities and the range of experience needed to further strengthen the reputation for excellence which the Liberian Corporate Registry has built for itself over a number of years.

“Anthony’s main objectives will be to help explore new markets - and possibly new services - for our corporate registry division. He will also help in our continued development of value-added relationships with the maritime legal and finance communities, while better engaging Liberia in various corporate industry forums, including The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP), to which organisation he has been an active contributor throughout his career to date.”


Giampiero Soncini has been appointed CEO of IB Marine Division.

“Under his guidance IB Marine is looking to become a major player in the marine IT sector,” explained Maurizio Ricci, IB President, who will retain the role of CEO IB Industry Division. “Giampiero and I have been competitors for over 30 years, and it is simply amazing that we can now work to build something together”.

IB employs over 100 people, and is based in Rapallo, on the Ligurian coast near Genoa, with offices in Cyprus, Germany, Norway and US.

A well financed expansion plan, including the opening of new offices in Asia, and Middle East, in addition to the ones already established in the areas, will be unveiled in the weeks to come.
