Ran Hettena

It is with deep regret that we have to advise members of the passing of Ran Hettena on 30th December 2001.

Ran Hettena was a Director of Overseas Shipholding Group from the founding of the company. Ran Hettena was also a long standing Council member of INTERTANKO, served two terms on the INTERTANKO Executive Committee, and was Vice-Chairman of INTERTANKO until 1999. Ran was a true gentleman with an immense wealth of knowledge which he willingly shared to the common good of our industry. 

As the first Chairman of INTERTANKO's North American Panel, he very successfully guided the international tanker industry in its efforts to establish an effective representational programme in the United States. His personal commitment to support high standards and quality yielded recognition and tangible lasting benefits for our industry.

Ran Hettena will be missed by all his friends in the shipping industry. Our thoughts at this time are with his wife Shirley and his sons Avy and Seth and their families.
