It is with great sadness that BIMCO announces the unexpected death of its Head of Maritime Security, Mr Giles Noakes on Wednesday 10 May.
Giles joined BIMCO in January 2008 and made a significant and lasting contribution to the development of maritime security across the industry.
He was well known and highly regarded, actively and expertly advising shipowners, operators, shipping associations, military, non-governmental organisations and government departments on maritime security issues. He was particularly instrumental in the development of Best Management Practices for protection against Somalia based piracy.
Giles was 62, and leaves a partner and 4 children.

London, W1J 9LL
Followed by a reception from 13:30 -15:30 at:
