Robert Minton-Taylor receives the Seahorse Club “Lifetime Achievement Award” from Sue Terpilowski, founder and director of Image Line

A shipping executive has been awarded a lifetime achievement award for his “outstanding” services to the industry by the UK-based Seahorse Club, the European shipping and logistics society. The “John Richman Lifetime Achievement Award” was given to Robert Minton-Taylor at the Seahorse Club Annual Media Awards in London to honour his 37 years of “dedication and professionalism” to the freight transport industry and his 43 years in journalism and public relations (PR). Shipping is crucial to the well-being of world trade as some 90% of world cargoes are transported by sea. For the past 30 years, Mr Minton-Taylor has worked for Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics, a Scandinavian shipping and logistics company where he was most recently the company’s global media relations manager. Barbara Colledge, Dean of Business & Law said: “We are so proud of Robert and his achievements. He has always been a valuable addition to the Leeds Business School teaching staff and it’s great to see his hard-work being recognized.”
