The society has decided to appoint David Furnival (of Bernhard Schulte Ship Management) as President, and Christopher Bailey (of BP Shipping) as Vice President. Furnival will replace Luc Gillet (of Total), who has decided to step down following a three-year term as the society’s President.
Andrew Clifton, SIGTTO General Manager, said: “I would like to thank Luc Gillet for his service as the Society’s President […] During his tenure SIGTTO made very positive progress and fully enhanced its reputation as the industry body for liquefied gas shipping and terminals.
“I now look forward to working with David Furnival as the Society presses ahead with the implementation of its new 2016 Strategic Plan. The initiative is aimed at ensuring that SIGTTO meets the needs and expectations of its growing membership in what is a dynamic time for our industry.”
Furnival added: “For my part I would like to thank the SIGTTO Directors and the members for their support […] I look forward to the years ahead during which I will be fully committed to promoting the activities of the Society for the benefit of the liquefied gas shipping industry.”
