Paul Pathy, President & CEO, Fednav

I cant believe it has been ten years (2007) that we have been working together. With you having filled multiple roles for our company, comprising several different areas of expertise, we always count on Spinnaker to be highly knowledgeable, connected, and well respected in the industry. The service is always good and we know we can rely on you to support our mutual values of trust and integrity. We look forward to our next mandate and I hope and expect to be working together for many years to come.

Donna Price, Global HR Business Partner, Stolt-Nielsen

It has been a very good experience working with Spinnaker, and in particular with Teresa Peacock. Her extensive recruitment experience and knowledge of the maritime market were invaluable to our process. As we were recruiting for a key position, her coordination of the project and team helped us greatly. Communication was clear every step of the way.

Tony Dixon, Chairman

Selecting the next Chief Executive is a vital decision for any business. When that organisation is also a 100 years old Royal Charter based membership organisation with global coverage, it is even more essential to find the right individual who will drive it forward with energy, skill and a sensitivity of approach which reflects the needs of the members both now and in the future. Phil Parry provided an excellent choice of candidates for this demanding role, from which we found exactly the right person. The service from Phil and his staff was exemplary in every way and I doubt that we would have had such a satisfactory outcome without the involvement of Spinnaker.

Spinnaker’s network of contacts is remarkable, as is their knowledge of the shipping industry and various roles that occupy it.

Sabrina Chao, Chairman

It was definitely a pleasant experience working with your professional team for our Global Executive Search. With our unique criteria and expectations on the candidate, Spinnaker was able to provide detailed assessment reports, highlighting the strengths, weaknesses and capabilities of the candidates in relations to our needs, which undoubtedly added immense values to our selection process. Your approachable attitude, tailored services and efficient manner throughout the period also impressed our management team. We’re pleased to share that the placement was successful and transitioning very well in the position. We have no hesitation in introducing Spinnaker as a desirable recruitment partner!

Stolt Tankers Shipowning

In 2016 we asked Spinnaker to assist us in the search for a new Global Manager Technical & New Building for the Shipowning division of Stolt Tankers BV in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. We have received a good selection of candidates and Spinnaker found us the right candidate, ticking almost all the boxes! The enthusiasm combined with professionalism of all those working for us on the search was great. We felt listened to, Spinnaker was never afraid to ask more questions and provided us with regular and good summaries and status reports. I can advise Spinnaker for specific higher management roles. The network is great and they know where to advertise and to reach out to the right candidates.

Jonathan Campbell, CFO, MSC Cruise Management (UK) Ltd

I am pleased to endorse the work of Teresa Peacock and Spinnaker, who over the past 18 months have provided invaluable support to our major UK maritime based recruitment programme. Teresa and her team at Spinnaker have been true partners, providing support and counsel going well beyond our agreed mandate. When we have had challenges Teresa has helped develop alternative approaches and solutions and when issues have arisen, as they inevitably do, we have been able to hold a frank and open dialogue to address them. Teresa and her team have also demonstrated a sustained level of energy and engagement over an extended period and delivered tangible results, without ever becoming aggressive or pushy, something we have particularly valued. We look forward to continuing to work together in the future.

Managing Director, Asia

Spinnaker was engaged on a global executive search project to source a director of bunker fuel strategy to be based in our European headquarters. This was a difficult project that required detailed knowledge of the shipping industry both to source the right person and to sell our opportunity to them. Spinnaker shortlisted some excellent individuals from around the world and were successful in finding us a Scandinavian based in Switzerland. We would not hesitate to recommend Spinnaker.
