The International Association of Independent Tanker Owners (INTERTANKO) announced that the Association’s Marine Director, Captain Robert Bishop is to leave the Association and join one of INTERTANKO’s prominent members, the Acomarit Group.

INTERTANKO’s Managing Director, Svein Ringbakken said that the Association was sad to loose  Bob Bishop but accepted it as part of the inevitable movement of key personnel within the industry. Bob Bishop has made significant contributions to INTERTANKO’s achievements during his five year period with INTERTANKO. His work on behalf of the tanker industry at the IMO and his efforts in relation to ship vetting were but two important areas where his contribution has been particularly valuable.

Svein Ringbakken confirmed that INTERTANKO has plans for keeping the Marine Manager function in the London office. He also said that plans had been developed to expand  INTERTANKO’s presence and activities in London subsequent to the appointment of the new Marine Manager.  These recommendations will be presented to INTERTANKO’s Council, which will meet in Oslo in September, for approval.
