Executive Search

Spinnaker leads the market in maritime executive search

​You may be surprised who’s already talking to us.​ We build deep relationships with the industry’s most sought-after executives. Spinnaker has a reputation for doing things properly, with discretion and integrity. As a result, people take our calls, and we rarely start a search with a blank sheet of paper.

Spinnaker’s retained search services are led personally by our most senior people.

Our Chairman, Phil Parry, took Spinnaker into board level search over twenty years ago. He and our long-established team of shipping executive search consultants have recruited many well-known executive and non-executive board members for private and public companies as well as trade associations and charities. ​

Spinnaker’s clients benefit not only from our unrivalled network of contacts, but also from our in-depth market knowledge:​

  • Our ability to understand your business and therefore who is not right for you, as well as who is, is the key to a successful search outcome.​
  • It is equally important that not only are we are able to identify suitable candidates, but that we are well equipped to motivate them to take an interest in your company and your role.​​
  • We take client and candidate confidentiality extremely seriously and are very protective of our reputation and those of our clients.
