Andy Longhurst joined CSG in October 2013 as Director, Shipping, to help CSG build a portfolio of shipping and offshore loans via originations and secondary market acquisitions of loans, bonds and portfolios.
Mr. Longhurst has more than 22 years of experience in the shipping and offshore service vessels industry, having worked in both banking and ship-owning. He started working for Lloyds Banking Group in London at the age of 16 and, during his almost 25-year career with Lloyds, he rose to become a Director and Deputy Head of Ship Finance. In this position, Andy was responsible for financing vessels in excess of USD4bn. covering the bank’s portfolios in Scandinavia, Western Europe and North America.
Mr. Longhurst subsequently spent four years working on the ship-owning side, for an operator of tankers, barges and tugs. He was responsible for arranging debt, managing joint ventures and growing the business. He then worked as an independent consultant, arranging finance for ship-owners and financiers, prior to joining CSG.
