Collar Appointed Vice President, Special Projects

Thursday, July 05, 2001
Crowley Maritime Corporation veteran Steve Collar has joined Marine Transport Corporation as Vice President, Special Projects effective July 1. He is domiciled in Marine Transport's Weehawken, NJ, headquarters and reports to Jeff Miller, Vice President, Chartering. Crowley acquired Marine Transport, a U.S.-based supplier of chemical parcel transportation, refined petroleum transportation, crude oil lightering, and ship management, in February. Collar, most recently Director of Special Projects for Crowley's Vessel Management Services subsidiary, will be responsible for helping Marine Transport and its subsidiary companies develop and market Marine Transport's fleet renewal and expansion projects, and will commercially manage selected vessels. He will also have a leadership role in the potential rebuilding of Marine Transport's product tanker fleet and in the expansion of the company's chemical transportation alliances with its partner, Stolt Nielsen Transportation Group. "Steve is a wonderful addition to Marine Transport Corporation's team," said Richard T. du Moulin, President of Marine Transport. "His industry experience, knowledge and contacts will complement and expand our existing commercial presence with the major oil and chemical industry transportation users. Steve's focus on meeting customer needs matches our business philosophy, and this move is another example of the smooth integration of relevant Crowley and Marine Transport operations." Collar joined Crowley in 1977 as an engineering assistant and has held positions of increasing responsibility over his 24-year career. Among other jobs, he has worked on oil barges as a tankerman, managed the operations of Crowley's annual sealifts of oil production modules to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, managed Crowley's West Coast fleet of ocean-going vessels and Northwest harbor tugs, and managed the company's West Coast oil transport business unit. As Director of Special Projects for Vessel Management Services, Collar worked on the company's new build programs to ensure the vessels being constructed met customer expectations, and was responsible for chartering them to customers. Collar completed his undergraduate work at colleges in Seattle and San Diego, and earned a Masters in Business Administration degree from the University of Washington.
