Admiral Zambellas is the First Sea Lord and Chief of Naval Staff, and as such is the Royal Navy's professional head and Chairman of the Navy Board. He is responsible to Secretary of State for Defence for the fighting effectiveness, efficiency and morale of the Naval Service, and supports the Secretary of State in the management and direction of the Armed Forces.

George Zambellas is fairly well known to the Company from his time on command of HMS CHATHAM in 1999, an affiliated unit from which he has made a spectacular graduation. He was educated in Zimbabwe, and at Stowe and Southampton University, graduating in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering. He joined the Royal Navy in 1980 from the aerospace industry and qualified as a pilot in 1982. He flew three tours in different helicopter types, serving in carriers and frigates.
After staff training in 1990, and a brief spell as a corporate planner, he commanded the mine hunter HMS Cattistock, an interesting coincidence since she too has Company affiliations. In 1993, he was posted to Northwood as a Fleet aviation operations officer before promotion in 1995 and command of the frigate HMS Argyll.
...
On promotion to Admiral in January 2012, George Zambellas became Commander, Allied Maritime Command Northwood, in which role he also discharged Full Command responsibilities as the Royal Navy's Fleet Commander until November 2012.
He was knighted KCB in 2012.
