John Phillips, Manager Director.

In support of global growth opportunities, the Singapore-based marine credit analysis company, has appointed John Phillips Manager Director.

 

Phillips will also become a member of the Petromedia Group Board and will be based in Singapore. John Phillips comes to Ocean Intelligence from his own consulting company, Awyr Las Pte Ltd, which will continue to be run autonomously. Phillips was Global Credit Manager for leading marine fuels supplier Chemoil, before he left to set up Awyr Las Pte Ltd, and before that Phillips was Operations Manager for Lloyds MIU. “Phillips brings strong leadership and management skills and 24 years of experience in the maritime industry, with specialism in ports and port agency, tanker operations and shipbroking. Phillips has worked for many years in marine credit, both as an external adviser and as a Credit Manager, so he brings invaluable knowledge,” said a statement from Petromedia Group, Ocean Intelligence’s parent company.


Adam Dupré, the outgoing Managing Director, has been appointed Chairman of the Petromedia Group. Commenting on the appointment of Phillips, Dupré said: “John has been brought in to build on Ocean Intelligence’s strengths and achieve its goals of progressive growth while actively ensuring operational e!ciencies, higher margins and increasing customer satisfaction.”
 


The appointment of Phillips is the first step of a management restructuring which sees Ocean Intelligence bringing in experienced first-class talent and promoting key staff as it prepares to meet global growth opportunities. Phillips is heading the next phase of the restructuring with more appointments to follow before the start of the new year. With immediate effect, Vernon Jayanathan is promoted from Sales Manager for Ocean Intelligence to Sales Director.
Jayanathan has over 15 years of commercial experience working with large multinationals as well as local and central government organisations. “I would like Ocean Intelligence to be seen as the provider of choice for those who
are looking for a premium supplier of company intelligence and credit reports,” said Jayanathan.
