Ian Adams to step down as ABTO chief
Maritime AMC managing director Ian Adams is to step down as chief executive of the association of bulk terminal operators (ABTO), handing over the reins to ABTO’s current events director, Simon Gutteridge.
Adams, who has been the driving force behind the association since its inception, will continue in an advisory role but hand over the day-to-day running of the ABTO secretariat on the 1 July 2019. Adams says: "I believe that ABTO will be placed in good hands and hope that all our members will continue to support him. I therefore send both Gutteridge and ABTO my best wishes for the future.”
Adams will continue to serve as the executive director of the Clean Shipping Alliance 2020, to which Maritime AMC provides secretariat management services. (mw)
