IBIA appoints Justin Murphy as new chief executive

Murphy to succeed Peter Hall as chief executive on 13th February.





Updated on 09 Feb 2017 10:52 GMT

The International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) has named Justin Murphy as its new chief executive. He is due to begin his new role on Monday 13th February.

Prior to his appointment, Murphy was CEO at London-based Acuity Shipping Ltd, a company that helps ship owners and investors with strategies to boost the overall performance of their shipping investments.

Between 2013 and 2015, Murphy was CEO of Brightoil Shipping, Singapore, and Executive Director at HKSE-listed Brightoil Petroleum (Holdings) Ltd, an energy conglomerate with bunkering and ship owning divisions.

IBIA's new chief executive has also held director and board-level positions at several firms involved in shipping, including Teekay, AET, and a stint as head of shipping at Macquarie Bank.

Commenting on the appointment, Robin Meech, chairman of IBIA, said: "We selected Justin for his proven track record of developing and implementing strategic plans, driving growth and also his practical hands-on experience leading successful teams across commercial, operational and technical functions in the shipping sector."

Murphy remarked: "I'm joining IBIA at an exciting time in its history and look forward to continuing the great work of recent years by developing and growing IBIA's membership and influence across all segments of the bunker and shipping industry and associated service sectors"

Last November, Captain Peter Hall, the current chief executive of the association, announced his decision to retire. Hall said: "I am delighted we have found someone of Justin's calibre to continue IBIA's expansion and manage the increasing diversity the Association offers. Justin inherits a loyal and capable team and I wish him well in the future."
