Today we learnt that one of our colleagues and friend passed away yesterday.
Giles was widely known in our industry for his knowledge and passion. It was this knowledge and passion that carried him through his four decade career in maritime.
He joined BIMCO as Chief Maritime Security Officer in 2008 and it was this role that cemented his contribution to the maritime industry.
Giles will always be associated with BMP , which he worked tirelessly with, right from the beginning.
He leaves behind a legacy which will last way beyond our lives. I will always remember Giles as a passionate pioneer, who’s industry looked up to him – we as individuals and as a community have been touched by Giles’ contribution to shipping and life.
Giles is survived by his wife and four children.
