Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), the world’s leading maritime services provider, has announced another new key hire within its Cargo Solutions division, with the appointment of Michael Ferguson as Vice President, Cargo Solutions, Terminals and Port Infrastructure.
With more than 35 years’ experience working in senior positions for companies like Drummond Coal, Kinder Morgan and the Forge Group, Mike’s expertise extends from bulk material handling through to roles in engineering, operations, mining, terminal management, project management and business development.
Based in the US, Mike will report directly to Chief Operating Officer, Cargo Solutions, Tim Cahill, and will focus on applying his extensive technical, commercial and multi-commodity knowledge to the development of ISS’ terminal operations business.
COO Tim Cahill said: “We have already taken Cargo Solutions global and are rapidly developing our capability within this business stream. The appointment of Mike Ferguson, following on quickly from the recent appointment of Vince Mazzone in our Geneva operation, takes us another step forward in the development of our cargo management strategy.
“The rapid expansion of ISS in this sector enables us to provide not only an extensive range of risk and cargo management services to serve the commodity markets, but also advance further into land based areas through our terminal operations.”
