Lord Ambrose Greenway spent his formative years in the Cornish port of Fowey which firmly established his lifelong love of the sea and ships. After five years as a marine insurance broker in Lloyd’s, he travelled to Australia on a Norwegian cargo liner and on his return embarked on a career as a marine photographer.
On the death of his father in 1975, he inherited a peerage and has served in the House of Lords ever since, specialising in maritime affairs. He has also worked in the ports industry for 20 years and during that time has also been President of the World Ship Society, President of Cruise Europe, Chairman of the Marine Society and Acting Chairman of the Sail Training Association. He is an Elder Brother of Trinity House and a council member of the RNLI, is married and lives in Devon.
