BIMCO Names Loosley CEO
BIMCO has appointed David Loosley as its new Secretary General & CEO with effect from June 2020.
Loosley joins from the Institute of Marine Engineering Science & Technology (IMarEST), which he led for the last eight years.
Prior to joining IMarEST, 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 standardization. He has also served at sea for 10 years in the UK Royal Navy.
Alongside his executive responsibilities, Loosley was a member of the UK Government’s Maritime 2050 Expert Panel and is a member of the UK Clean Maritime Council.
Angus Frew, BIMCO’s current Secretary General & CEO, had previously announced that he will be stepping down in the summer of 2020 after leading the organization for seven years as he wishes to spend more time in the UK and less time working.
