Former Euronav CEO Paddy Rodgers has been appointed to the position of Director at the Royal Museums Greenwich in England, succeeding Kevin Fewster.
Paddy Rodgers served as CEO of Euronav, one of the largest international shipping companies in the world, since 2000. Rodgers announced that he was stepping down from Euronav in February.
Rodgers will take up his new post at Royal Museums Greenwich in August 2019.
Royal Museums Greenwich comprises four museums – the Royal Observatory, Cutty Sark, National Maritime Museum and Queen’s House – which together form the Maritime Greenwich UNESCO World Heritage Site. The site welcomes over two and a half million British and international visitors per year, and is also a major center for education and research.
“Paddy joins us on the completion of a hugely successful masterplan project,” said Sir Charles Dunstone, Chair of Royal Museums Greenwich Trustees. “With his first class links in the maritime industries, demonstrable communication and leadership skills and experience of environmental impacts, the Museum’s Trustees believe Paddy is the right person to lead the Museum on the next stage of our development. We all look forward to his working with us in the coming years.”
“I have been privileged to have been a Life Patron in such an important national institution and I have been very impressed to see its development on so many fronts under Kevin Fewster’s tenure,” commented Rodgers. “I am clearly delighted and excited to be joining the team and to lead the Museum into a bright and sustainable future.”
