Guy Campbell

Independent Trustee (Chair)

A dry cargo specialist, Guy Campbell became a Baltic Exchange member in 1991 having commenced his career as a shipbroker at JE Hyde & Co. He joined Koch Industries in 1997, spending 10 years as a Chartering Manager and eventually as Director, Ocean Freight for Koch Carbon LLC. After a further six years as Dry Cargo Managing Director at the world’s largest shipping service provider Clarksons, Guy joined The China Navigation Co Pte Ltd, now Swire Bulk Pte Ltd, the deep sea ship owning and operating arm of the Swire Group where he was General Manager (Atlantic) until becoming a full time Arbitrator. His broad shipping career has included broking, chartering, freight and derivative trading and operating.

Guy served as Chairman of the Baltic Exchange’s Freight Market Information Users’ Group in 2005 at a time of migration from OTC derivatives trading toward a modern FFABA contract. The period also saw the introduction of clearing to the FFA market which ultimately enabled the market to survive the disruptions of 2008. He served on the Board of the Baltic Exchange from 2009-2016, eventually as Chairman (2014-2016) Chairing the shareholder sale to SGX in 2016, the most important transition in the Baltic Exchange’s 272 year history.
