Event Details from New Canaan Library
Maritime shipping literally makes the world go ‘round, as 90 percent of world trade arrives at its destination via the Oceans. In his recently released book, The Saltwater Highway, Anthony Whitworth writes about his nearly five decades in the industry and takes us through the evolution of modern maritime shipping. His unique business adventures travel along the high seas to far-flung places as the Arctic Circle, the upper regions of the River Plate in South America, the shores of western Scotland, and various capital cities of the world including London, Moscow, and Beijing. During this program it will become apparent how maritime transportation impacts our daily lives.
Anthony R. Whitworth, a graduate of Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, served as CEO of the Navios Group from 1999 through 2005 and is currently the co-managing partner of Sea Trade Holdings. He continues to keep a close eye on all facets of the maritime industry and divides his time between homes in Connecticut and Quebec.
