The Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators (SIGTTO) has appointed industry veteran Chris Clucas as interim general manager until a permanent replacement for outgoing general manager Andrew Clifton can be recruited
Mr Clifton will step down 4 March 2022, and Mr Clucas will take over the role for four to six months.
SIGTTO president Steffen Jacobsen said, “I am very pleased the society can welcome Chris as a very experienced hand to fill Andrew’s role while we work on finding the right permanent candidate for the position. Chris is very experienced in the gas industry and fully familiar with the activities of the society.”
Mr Clucas is principal at Liquefied Gas Consultancy Ltd, Isle of Man with extensive experience of transporting liquefied gas by sea. He has nearly half a century’s worth of experience working in the industry and has been appointed as past chair of SIGTTO’s General Purposes Committee and past Chair of the SIGTTO Panel.
He was also elected founder president of SIGTTO’s sister organisation, the Society for Gas as a Marine Fuel and is the current secretary.
Mr Clucas said, “I am honoured to take over the helm at SIGTTO during these very interesting times of change. The key will be to ensuring the Society responds to this fast-developing landscape, and continues the excellent support for members in the journey ahead, while never losing sight of our excellent safety record.”
