A celebration of Peter Philip Broke-Smith’s life will be held in the afternoon of Thursday 22 March in Notting Hill, London. Peter Broke-Smith sadly passed away on 3 January having bravely battled cancer for over six years. He first became a member of the Baltic Exchange in 1969 while at Eggar Forrester. Thereafter he joined RB Hunt & Partners where he relocated to Tokyo, working closely with Nakamura, a Japanese company. On his return to London he set up Thornton Chartering. Thereafter he founded PBS Shipping Associates, working closely with a number of Russian shipping companies, prior to establishing Anglo-Georgian Shipping Company, a pioneering partnership with the Georgian Shipping Company to assist that country to rebuild its merchant shipping fleet after the break-up of the Soviet Union.
Should any members wish to attend the gathering, please contact Tim Broke-Smith, via PBS@bonobo.co.uk and details will be provided. At Peter’s request his funeral was held privately. Donations welcomed to Cancer Research UK in Peter’s memory at: https://fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/page/broker.
