INTERTANKO’s Council will be invited at its October meeting in Singapore to appoint Joseph Angelo, Deputy MD, to succeed Peter Swift as Managing Director on his retirement on 31 December, 2010. In addition, Katharina (Kathi) Stanzel has been appointed Deputy MD.
INTERTANKO had an overwhelming level of interest in the position and some highly qualified and capable individuals were shortlisted. “We are grateful and flattered by some of the names who threw their hat into the ring,” says Graham Westgarth, INTERTANKO’s Chairman. “Ultimately however, we felt that Joe and Kathi working together to lead INTERTANKO through its change of MD was an optimal solution.”
Joe Angelo has worked for INTERTANKO for six years, first as Director of Regulatory Affairs and the Americas. Prior to joining INTERTANKO he held various senior roles in the United States Coast Guard, lastly as Director of Standards for Marine Safety, Security and Environmental Protection, where he led U.S. delegations at the International Maritime Organization. As the existing Deputy MD, he ensures continuity and stability to INTERTANKO’s membership upon Peter’s departure.
Kathi Stanzel joins INTERTANKO from the International Oil Pollution Compensation Funds (IOPC). A marine biologist by profession, she has worked in senior technical advisory and claims management roles within the marine pollution sector.
