Simpson Spence Young (SSY) has poached Toby English from rival UK broker Affinity to head up the London outfit’s S&P division.
With experience spanning over 20 years in S&P, including stints at Clarksons and RS Platou, English was also one of the founding partners of Affinity, where he has been leading the S&P desk since its inception in 2015.
“We’re thrilled that Toby will be joining us to head up our global S&P teams. He brings a vast amount of experience and knowledge to the role and we’re looking forward to working with him on a major restructuring of our S&P offering. This is part of our long-term investment strategy to build out our forward order book, combining newbuildings and S&P with long term period and projects,” commented Mark Richardson, chairman of SSY.
