UK Chamber of Shipping appoints new CEO

UK Chamber of Shipping has appointed Bob Sanguinetti as its new CEO, taking over from Guy Platten who is moving over to the International Chamber of Shipping.

Sanguinetti is moving from the role of CEO at Gibraltar Port Authority, which he has held since April 2014.

Sir Michael Bibby, president of the UK Chamber of Shipping commented: “Bob comes with a distinguished track record of service to the industry, both in a civilian and military context. His excellent track record at the Gibraltar Port Authority speaks for itself, and his leading role in developing Gibraltar’s Brexit contingency plan will stand him in excellent stead as the UK Chamber seeks to strengthen its role as a leading voice of British industry.”

Sanguinetti starts on July 16.
