EURONAV CEO TO STEP DOWN

Monday, February 4, 2019 

Euronav has announced that CEO Paddy Rodgers has decided to step down from his role during 2019 after 18 years of service.

Euronav will now commence a recruitment process for a new CEO with Rogers remaining in position until a successor is appointed to facilitate an efficient transition period.

Rodgers said: “It has been a real honour and privilege to lead Euronav as CEO. The company has progressed from a family operation with 17 vessels to the largest crude tanker company in the world with 73 vessels, listed on both Euronext and NYSE. Having now completed in full the Gener8 merger I wish to pursue other opportunities and believe it is an appropriate time to hand over the baton of leadership of a strong and best-in-class large crude tanker business. I would like to thank all of the staff at Euronav for their dedication, unwavering support and professionalism in my time at the company”.

Carl Steen, Chairman of Euronav said: “We respect Paddy’s decision to step down after transforming Euronav under his stewardship. Euronav is in a strong position with sector low leverage, substantial liquidity and operational flexibility to take on the challenges from the tanker market going forward. Euronav’s strategy remains unchanged and the board and management team look forward to building on the legacy created by Paddy. ”
