Maxwell will take over from Simon Crowe who has decided to step down from the position. Maxwell will commence his new role immediately after the 20-F filings for GasLog and the Partnership (expected to be in early March 2017). Until then, Crowe will continue to serve as CFO, and will work with Maxwell to ensure a smooth transition.
Maxwell said: “I am delighted to be joining GasLog and GasLog Partners at such an exciting time in the LNG market and in the development of the Group. I look forward to working with the GasLog team to build on the growth and shareholder value that they have delivered over the last several years."
The new CFO has spent 29 years in investment banking, and has experience in both energy and finance. Most recently, he served as the Co-Head of the Global Energy Group in the Investment Banking Division of Goldman Sachs from 2010 to 2016. Previously, he served as the Head of the Energy Group in the EMEA region at Morgan Stanley. He has worked on a number of M&A transactions and equity, debt and structured financings across all segments of the energy value chain.
The CEO of GasLog Ltd, Paul Wogan, said: “On behalf of the board, Chairman Peter Livanos, and the management team, I am pleased to welcome Alastair to GasLog. His deep understanding of the energy sector and financial markets and his involvement in some of the largest transactions in the industry will make him a huge asset to the team."
The CEO of GasLog Partners, Andy Orekar, added: “On behalf of the board and Chairman Curt Anastasio, I am thrilled to have Alastair join the Partnership. His global energy experience, finance expertise and proven leadership capabilities are highly complementary to our senior executive team."
