They bring decades of experience in public relations, journalism, publishing, and sales to the management team of the not-for-profit organisation, which champions career and networking opportunities for journalists in supply chain and transport. 

Raja has launched and managed aviation titles and events including Airtransport Publications in 1994, and EVA International in 2007, which publishes titles such as Cargo Airports and Airlines Service (CAAS) and Airline Routes & Ground Services (ARGS), organises events globally, and broadcasts the EVA Podcast. 

Minton-Taylor trained and worked as a journalist before moving into public relations, spending over 47 years working for clients in the air cargo, rail, road and maritime sectors. 24 of those years were spent working with Wallenius Wilhelmsen as its global media relations manager while also teaching public relations at Leeds Business School, part of Leeds Beckett University. He is a former chairperson of Seahorse and a recipient of its Lifetime Achievement Award for services to shipping. 

Seahorse has also relaunched its summer BBQ networking event, which will be held on June 17, 2024, at Doggett’s Coat and Badge in London.
