PAUL Butterworth was appointed Chair of Seafarers UK at the charity’s Annual Meeting this week, after serving as a Trustee for three years.

Paul Butterworth is a Partner and Head of the Maritime & Shipping Practice at the global executive search firm Odgers Berndtson, based in their London office.

A passionate sailor, Paul has 28 years’ experience of the maritime sector, 15 of which have been in executive search. This builds upon a first career that saw him serving at sea, where he enjoyed two ship Commands in the Royal Navy.

Commenting upon his appointment, Paul said:

“I am deeply honoured to be taking the helm of the Seafarers UK General Council, particularly during this year’s Seafarers Awareness Week. Over the last few months, the plight of stranded seafarers has gained increasing visibility and the work of Seafarers UK has never been so needed since our founding in 1917.”

Seafarers UK is one of the UK’s leading maritime welfare charities, awarding annual grants of £2 million to support seafarers and fishers in need, and their families. This year, the charity’s Trustees have released an additional £2 million from reserves to fund the delivery of services to seafarers of all nationalities impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
