Jesper Rosenkrans, who joined the Board of International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) on 01 April 2021, will be stepping down as an IBIA Board Member following a new role at TotalEnergies, said IBIA on Wednesday (20 July).
The Board noted Jesper as “a valuable and important asset to the IBIA Board and various working groups” during his role as Global Commercial Director for Marine Fuels at TotalEnergies.
“The IBIA Board and Secretariat wish Jesper the greatest success in his new role and acknowledge the contribution he has made to the association, not only when serving on the IBIA Board, but as an active member of IBIA,” it highlights.
Unni Einemo, IBIA Director comments: “Jesper brought great insights and clarity of thought to the table, and it has been a pleasure working with him. We will miss his presence in the bunker industry and on the Board of IBIA.”
The IBIA Board has taken a decision not to replace Jesper’s position on the board. As it stands, the IBIA board has a broad industry representation and will wait for the next board elections later this year to appoint a democratically elected representative.
Jesper moved to Singapore in 2019 to assume the global responsibility for sales, trading, operations, and business development of TotalEnergies Marine Fuels.
“The last three years have been tremendously rewarding, as we have accelerated our energy transition,” he said on a recent LinkedIn post.
“We have moved our conventional business from high-sulphur to low-sulphur in response to the IMO-2020 transition, we successfully started operations of two LNG bunkering vessels in ARA and Marseilles, we have a number of successful biofuels deliveries under our belt in Singapore, and our teams, strategy – and even our name/logo – are fully mobilized to decarbonise shipping now and in the years to come.
“I am thankful to my (awesome) teams for their dedication, resilience, and agility. For the collaborative spirit they embody even when times are tough, and for the many successes, laughs, and memories we have shared.”
Jesper will be moving to Warsaw, Poland in early August, where he will be taking up the role of Managing Director and Country Chair for TotalEnergies Polska.
