Guy Platten New Secretary-General of ICS

After four and a half years at the UK Chamber, Guy Platten is to step down as CEO to take on the role of Secretary-General at the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS).

Platten will replace Mr. Peter Hinchliffe who is the current Secretary-General of ICS in the summer.

Hinchliffe revealed his plans to withdraw from the post early last year.

He was appointed Secretary-General of ICS mid-2010.

“Whilst excited about the challenge, I shall also be sad to leave the Chamber and I believe we have been on quite a journey since 2014 with much achieved. Thank you for all your support,” Guy said.

The UK Chamber said that the recruitment process for Guy’s successor will begin very shortly, but in the interim Guy remains committed to his work at the UK Chamber.
