Hånell takes over at ITOPF

Nov 08 2019

At its board meeting in Shanghai on 5th November, ITOPF appointed Erik Hånell, President & CEO of Stena Bulk, as its new Chairman, replacing Paddy Rodgers.

Hånell has served on ITOPF’s board for the last seven years and is also on the board of Skuld P&I Club.

ITOPF’s Managing Director, Karen Purnell, said that she, and the team, would miss Paddy’s energetic contributions to the work of the organisation.

She welcomed Erik’s appointment saying that he would bring a wealth of experience, particularly in areas that will be important as ITOPF further enhances its reputation as the global resource for preparedness and response to ship source pollution.
