Mr. Noble has worked in commercial shipping since 1962 when he joined HMS Conway, the preeminent pre-sea training school in the United Kingdom.  He served as a deck officer in the British Merchant Marine sailing with shipping lines including Blue Funnel and Palm Line.

 

After obtaining his Master Mariners certificate, Mr. Noble graduated with a Nautical Studies BSc (Honors) from Southampton University in 1977.  After serving as a claims executive with Thomas Miller (The UK P & I Club), he opened the London office of Murray Fenton & Associates Limited in 1980.  Following the acquisition of Murray Fenton by BMT, in 1999, he was Chief Executive Officer of the Salvage Association until 2005.

He is currently a Trustee of the Maritime London Officer Cadet Scholarship program, a London-based charity funded by city organizations that provides training scholarships for young people wishing to follow a career at sea. “It is a great honor for Donjon to welcome someone of John Noble’s character, caliber and experience to our team in the U.K.  He is highly respected throughout the world-wide maritime communities and we are lucky to have him as our partner ‘across the pond’,” said J.
