Tanker owners' group International Tanker Owners Pollution Federation (ITOPF) selected Erik Hanell President & CEO of Stena Bulk, as its new Chairman.

After eight years, former Euronav chief executive Paddy Rodgers has stepped down as ITOPF chairman.

Rodgers noted that he had thoroughly enjoyed his tenure on the board and had valued the opportunity to contribute to ITOPF's strategic direction and to the work of its highly regarded international team.

The board voted unanimously to appoint Erik Hånell as its new Chairman, said a press release.

Erik has served on ITOPF's board for the last 7 years and is also on the board of Skuld P&I Club.

ITOPF's Managing Director, Karen Purnell, said that she, and the team, would miss Paddy's energetic contributions to the work of the organisation.

She welcomed Erik's appointment saying that he would bring a wealth of experience, particularly in areas that will be important as ITOPF further enhances its reputation as the global resource for preparedness and response to ship source pollution.
