Mike Newton

I’ve been in the Shipping Industry for over 40 years. After starting my career as an Engineer at sea in 1974, I eventually came ashore and progressed through the various aspects of the Shipping Industry before moving into the Sales and Marketing area. I managed a Shipping Agency before finally founding Pegasus Shipping Agency in 1999. My enthusiasm for the industry is still apparent today in everything I do, and I especially enjoy the daily challenges that arise.

I’m now in my sixth year with Pegasus Shipping Agency. I’ve had a keen interest in ships from a young age when my sister and I were often invited aboard to meet the Captain and Crew of visiting vessels. In addition to many years of practical experience, completing a Certificate of Commercial Logistics further expanded my Shipping Industry knowledge. I particularly enjoy understanding and managing the many facets of the business.
