RightShip has appointed Martin Crawford-Brunt as CEO. Crawford-Brunt will replace outgoing CEO Warwick Norman, who announced his decision to step down from the position in 2017.
Crawford-Brunt takes up his new post on 12 March 2018 and brings more than 20 years of maritime sector experience to RightShip. He joins RightShip from DNV GL where he was responsible for leading significant change, transforming its business model and introducing innovative services. He will initially be based at RightShip’s London office.
Peter Mannion, RightShip Chairman and General Manager Marine Operations at Rio Tinto, said: “Martin Crawford-Brunt is a highly respected and effective leader and the perfect candidate to lead RightShip through its next phase. We have been looking for a candidate who has the industry knowledge that will help us grow, as well as the personal attributes to lead and inspire a global team. I am confident that Martin possesses the right mix of maritime industry experience, management and leadership skills to continue the outstanding contribution made by Warwick Norman over the last 16 years.”
Warwick Norman, who was recently awarded an Order of Australia for exceptional services to the maritime industry, finished as CEO of RightShip on 31 January 2018. Warwick will continue to support RightShip as a strategic consultant to the board during the CEO transition process.
The company has stated that there will be no interruption to RightShip services during the transition to a new CEO. Customers, suppliers and staff can expect business as usual.
