Ship management and services company V.Group reports that Paddy Rodgers has been appointed as a non-executive director.
Rodgers served as CEO of Euronav for 18 years and was known for making forthright and sometimes controversial comments on marine industry issues.
Under his leadership Euronav grew from a family operation with 17 vessels to one of the largest international tanker companies with 73 vessels. He stepped down as Euronav CEO in February last year and is currently Director at the Royal Museums Greenwich, England.
“We welcome Paddy to our Board,” said John Pattullo, Chairman of V.Group “His global experience in driving significant business growth, his knowledge of the tanker market and his expertise in building long-term partnerships will be invaluable as we continue to strengthen and grow V.Group.”
“I am honored to be joining V.Group at such a challenging and exciting time,” said Rodgers. “I am deeply passionate about this industry, the importance of the role of seafarers and sustainability and I look forward to contributing my experience and knowledge to benefit V.Group and its customers.”
