Phil Clayton

Founder and MD of Brunel Shipping, I have been working in the shipping industry for more than 50 years. I’ve seen the company manage all manner of freight-forwarding, including major projects such as organising an entire steel works to be shipped out of South Wales and into Eastern Europe and India. I’m incredibly proud of what we achieve every day, and am thrilled to have my son Rich working with us. Away from shipping, I played rugby for more than 20 years (and the company continues to sponsor Caldicot RFC, my local club, in Wales), but these days I’m less likely to be holding a rugby ball and far more likely to be found with a glass of red wine!
