“Jeremy advised the Board some time ago of his plans and we will of course be sorry to lose him. We are now in a position to launch a formal search for his successor, which will be managed by Odgers Berndtson, ” said Guy Campbell, Chairman of the Baltic Exchange.
Jeremy Penn said:
“It has been a privilege to work for the interest of the Baltic, its members and shareholders for the last 12 years and in many ways I shall be sorry to go. However, now is the time to give myself the opportunity to pursue other projects and interests, some of which will certainly be in shipping.”
The Baltic Exchange is the world’s only independent source of maritime market information for the trading and settlement of physical and derivative contracts. Its international community of over 640 members encompasses the majority of world shipping interests and commits to a code of business conduct overseen by the Baltic.
