Angela Chao, the CEO and Chairperson of Foremost Group, a prominent dry bulk shipping company based in New York, unfortunately died in a car accident. The reports of her untimely death have devastated the maritime sector.

Her tenure with the company started in 1996 when she moved from Smith Barney’s, which is now a part of Morgan Stanley’s mergers and acquisitions department.

Chao’s leadership was set apart by her unwavering dedication to excellence and her conviction that the shipping industry’s success rests in placing a high value on people when she rose to the position of president of Foremost Group in 2018. She fervently supported ecologically friendly procedures and gave the welfare of the crews and other participants, both onboard and ashore, a top priority.

Chao is a renowned graduate of Harvard Business School and Harvard College. Her commitment to the shipping business and academic excellence have been apparent throughout her career. Her groundbreaking “Ocean Carriers” case study is still an obligatory subject for first-year Harvard Business School students.

Apart from her position at Foremost Group, Chao was a member of other advisory boards in the maritime sector, such as the American Bureau of Shipping Council and the International Maritime Business Department of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Her efforts had a significant impact on how the sector developed.

Foremost Group, which described Angela Chao as a strong CEO and a leader for women in the shipping, philanthropic, and arts industries, expressed profound grief at her passing. Her innovative leadership legacy will inspire future generations.
On behalf of the Chao family, Chao’s father, Dr. James S. C. Chao, issued a statement expressing the immense loss and devastation felt by her loved ones. He emphasised Angela’s outstanding qualities, academic successes, and steadfast devotion to her family, the community, and philanthropy.

The loss of Angela Chao is felt not only by her loved ones and coworkers but also by the larger Asian-American community, where she was a highly esteemed figure. Angela Chao will always be regarded with great respect and appreciation for her lasting influence on the shipping industry and the lives she touched.
