MSC’s CAPTAIN SARNO STEPS DOWN AS MANAGING DIRECTOR OF MSC SOUTH AFRICA

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In an unexpected announcement this evening (Thursday, 23 June), Captain Salvatore Sarno, managing director of Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) in South Africa made the announcement that he was stepping down as MD of the South African company with immediate effect.

His place will be taken by his son Rosario Sarno, 35, who holds a doctorate in law and has been a part of MSC management for a number of years.

Captain Sarno will remain as chairman of the board of MSC in South Africa. “Unfortunately for some, Captain Sarno will still be there,” the captain joked. He was speaking at a gala celebration held in the port of Durban to mark 40 years since the first MSC ship, the 100m long MV RAPHAELA called at the port on an epic round Africa voyage in 1971. Captain Sarno was serving on the ship at that time as second officer and said he immediately fell in love with the city which he was later to make his home and the home of MSC in South Africa.

He was later to take command of the vessel followed by command of several others before going ashore into management of the then young Geneva-based company.
