David Loosley appointed Secretary-General & CEO of BIMCO


BIMCO has announced that following a thorough executive search, it has appointed Mr David Loosley as its new Secretary-General & CEO with effect from June 2020. Mr Loosley joins from the Institute of Marine Engineering Science & Technology (IMarEST), the international membership body for all marine professionals, which he has successfully led for the last eight years.


“We are delighted to have found a successor who can continue to build on the excellent work carried out by Angus Frew in positioning BIMCO as the world’s largest international shipping association,” BIMCO President, Mr Sadan Kaptanoglu, said announcing his appointment.


Prior to joining IMarEST, Mr Loosley ran operations at the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) where he was responsible for the transition from analogue to digital navigational products, and chaired the Digital Geospatial Information Working Group (DGWIG) to help drive global standardisation. He has also served at sea for 10 years in the UK Royal Navy.


Alongside his executive responsibilities, Mr Loosley was a member of the UK Government’s Maritime 2050 Expert Panel and is a member of the UK Clean Maritime Council.


“I am very excited to be joining BIMCO at this critical time for the industry where a volatile market, new technology and increasing environmental regulation are all having a significant impact. I look forward to working with the Board of Directors to build on the work of my predecessor and to ensure that BIMCO maintains its relevance and leadership position, continuing to provide practical solutions and expert advice to its members and the wider maritime community,” Mr Loosley said, as per a release.
