It is with extreme regret and sadness that we announce the death of our very good friend Fred Doll. Fred has been for many years a leading light in the shipping market. An American citizen living in sunny Sussex in the UK, Fred was at sea with Exxonmobil, was a fluent Italian speaker having lived in Italy as a voluntarily worker, was a director at Clarksons for 3 years and since the late nineties was self-employed as a highly regarded maritime economist and MD of Doll Shipping Consultancy and partner in Navigate Events. Fred worked closely with Spinnaker for many years and was a regular contributor to the Maritime HR Forum whose members last heard his words of wisdom this June. Fred, you will be greatly missed. Fred's funeral will be held at Holy Trinity Church, Forest Row, Sussex, UK on 8th November at 11am.
