Andrew Cunningham passed away on 31 January after a long illness, at the age of 66. He was with Moore Stephens all his working life. He joined the firm in 1963, became a partner in 1972, and retired in 2010. His career involved every aspect of the international shipping industry. He was particularly close to the Greek shipping community, and greatly admired its entrepreneurial spirit and family-based work ethic and he was a central figure in the opening-up to Moore Stephens of shipping in Russia and the Former Soviet Union.
Andrew visited almost fifty countries in his time at Moore Stephens, and greatly enjoyed being part of the global shipping community. He was a Liveryman of the Upholders’ Company and the Shipwrights’ Company, and a Freeman of the Goldsmiths’ Company. He was also Treasurer of St Sepulchre-without-Newgate – an association of which he was very proud.
He is survived by his wife Mary and his two sons, Anthony and John.
Moore Stephens Senior Partner, Richard Moore said, “Andrew Cunningham was a larger-than-life figure in the shipping industry. Widely known and highly respected, he was a household name in his areas of specialisation. He will be greatly missed by his family and by all his friends and former colleagues at Moore Stephens, as well as by the shipping industry generally.”
