The International Bunker Industry Association’s CEO Justin Murphy will leave his post on September 15 to take up a new challenge in Abu Dhabi, IBIA announced Wednesday.
But rather find a replacement, the organisation has decided to set up a new structure where the various responsibilities of the CEO are shared by a management team.
Unni Einemo, who joined IBIA as its IMO Representative and Communications Manager in April 2016, will take on the newly created role of Director.
Einemo will retain her current responsibilities in addition to serving as the most senior member of the IBIA secretariat.
Sofia Konstantopoulou, who joined IBIA in February this years, takes on the newly created role of Global Head, Marketing & Events.
Another new role of General Manager, Membership and Administration, will be filled in October. The board believes this structure will support members’ needs effectively, it said.
“The International Bunker Industry Association’s is restructuring to provide a greater diversity of expertise within the secretariat to match IBIA’s ambitions and goals,” said the organisation.
