Arctic Directory: ASG’s chairman and CEO, Bob Magee, passes away

American Shipping Group said Dec. 1 that its long-term chairman and CEO, Bob Magee, passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. Magee joined Totem Ocean Trailer Express in May 1986 as vice president marine operations. He went on to become president and CEO of TOTE, later chairman of Sea Star Line LLC, and then chairman and CEO of American Shipping Group. In 2004, Magee was presented with the United Seamen’s Service Admiral of the Ocean Sea Award, recognizing his longtime career in the maritime industry, leadership and fine American spirit. He received numerous maritime awards, while giving all the credit to his employees. Magee was also known for giving generously of his time and money, sitting on the advisory boards for USMMA Kings Point and United Way of Peirce County, and for being involved in many other clubs and association.

“Bob will be missed by all of us,” said Tim Engle, president of Saltchuk Resouces Inc, “those who work in our family of companies, our customers, labor partners, vendors, public policy representatives, members of our industry and the communities in which we serve. Our thoughts are with his wife Marie, and the rest of the family.”
