Warwick Norman steps down at RightShip

Warwick Norman is stepping down from his position of CEO at Australian online vetting company RightShip.

Norman, who has held the CEO role since RightShip’s inception in 2001, commented: “I felt it was time for a change, and with the board’s agreement, decided that I will step back and let another lead the charge at RightShip.”

He will stay on as a strategic consultant assisting with the transition to a new CEO.

Andrew Barker, RightShip chairman and Cargill Ocean Transportation Asia Pacific lead, said: “Warwick has made an unparalleled contribution to the extraordinary success of RightShip. Together with my colleagues on the board, I would like to thank him for his dedication, commitment and sheer hard work. We are sad to see him step aside but respect his decision and are grateful that he has agreed to stay on as a strategic consultant to the management and board at RightShip.”

“We have begun our search for a new CEO which will be a careful and considered process. Over this period it will be ‘business as usual’ at RightShip, ensuring the organisation continues to provide high quality support for vetting, inspection and sustainability customers,” Barker added.
