Jones steps down as BRS chairman

Jones steps down as BRS chairman

(Posted on 12/10/20)

The BRS Group has a new chairman. As the partnership agreement stipulates, on reaching the age of 65 partners must resign from the board. Bruno Jourdan Barry and Tim Jones did so at the board meeting last week in Luxembourg. Tim has stepped down from his position as Chairman which he has held since 2014 and by an unanimous vote is succeeded by the current CEO François Cadiou. Tim Jones will remain with the Group, continue his current commercial activities and contribute to new developments and trends.

On the change, Tim Jones said: ‘It has been a real privilege and honor to be at the helm of the company. BRS is a very special place to work, we have always shared the good times with everyone but most importantly it is a fun place to work where we didn’t just have jobs we have life styles and friends. I am delighted to see a new board and a new chairman in whom I have full confidence.’

François Cadiou declared ‘The changeover of crew on the bridge of a company is always a delicate matter, but the organization that BRS has had in place for now 30 years facilitated this transfer, I have personally experienced the transition of four Chairmen since my arrival at BRS in 1990. Tim Jones has perfectly prepared the next act and I am grateful to him, I would also like to especially thank Tim for all his years at the head of BRS, for having developed BRS and passed on a great company. I am very enthusiastic to take up the new challenge and develop BRS further into the ‘brokerage of tomorrow’.

The BRS Group is a diversified and dynamic global shipping services group offering a range of maritime activities to complement its core broking business. As well as Shipbroking, the Group’s activities include Freight Derivatives, Software Technology, Market Intelligence and Maritime Consulting. The Group also holds financial investments in Data Management and Chartering Software provider, AXSMarine and the Alpha Brands. The BRS Group has more than 500 employees in 18 offices worldwide with close to 100 partners.
