At its recent general meeting in London, the International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) elected new officers
to its executive.
Chris Leigh-Jones of Kittiwake Developments Ltd was elected the association's new chairman. He replaces Ivar Tonsen of Gearbulk and was previously IBIA's vice chairman.; the association's new vice chairman is Nicholas Ladis of NL Transol in Greece; David Peart of Tyne Tees Bunkering retired as honorary secretary. Paul Dyke of Tramp Oil takes over in this role; and Angus Ogilvie of Cockett Marine continues his term as honorary treasurer.
"This is a strong management team and it will help guide and shape IBIA's efforts over the next two years. Thanks in no small measure to the efforts of Ivar and David, the new executive
has inherited a healthy and vibrant association that has achieved recognition throughout the shipping industry. We are very much looking forward to building on that by increasing our membership base and strengthening our educational initiatives," says Chris Leigh-Jones.
