Clipper Group CEO Peter Norborg is to join Swire Bulk as its Chief Executive in early 2021 when the company demerges from China Navigation Co.
Swire will be established as a stand-alone company from January onwards, as CNCo will split their dry bulk shipping activities from the liner shipping and fleet management business.
Spinnaker’s Executive Search team are proud to have worked on this appointment. Spinnaker’s Chairman, Phil Parry, says of the appointment:
“I am delighted that Spinnaker were appointed to conduct the executive search for Swire Bulk’s CEO. The shortlist for this role was extremely strong and that is testament to the Swire Group’s first-class reputation and professionalism. If you believe the saying that a company’s greatest assets are its people, then attracting the best people must of course be every company’s aim. When approaching people for this role we were met with universally positive reactions. Swire were a pleasure to deal with throughout, further reinforcing our confidence in recommending them to some extremely strong C-level candidates. We wish Peter Norborg as CEO, Sam Swire as Chairman and the whole Swire Bulk team well.”
