Angus Frew stepping down at BIMCO

Angus Frew, secretary general & CEO of BIMCO, has announced that he will step down from his role in 2020.

Frew was appointed to lead BIMCO in 2013, moving from the position of chief executive at the UK Chamber of Shipping.

Sadan Kaptanoglu, president of BIMCO, commented: “In six successful years, Angus has moved BIMCO to the forefront of the shipping industry and made sure our members’ opinions and positions are listened to at the highest levels of government. He will leave an organisation very well prepared to deal with the challenges the industry will face in the coming years.”

BIMCO has appointed executive search firm Odgers Berndtson to find a replacement for Frew, who will stay on until August 2020.

“The candidate must have outstanding communication skills and be a proven leader in an international and commercial shipping-related business,” Kaptanoglu said.
