Henrik Zederkof of Bunker Holding, Denmark who has served as chair for two years, and bunker industry veteran and independent consultant Nigel Draffin, who has been our treasurer, have stepped down from the board as their elected terms have come to an end. IBIA extends a huge thanks to both for their dedication and valuable contributions to the Association during their tenure.
IBIA Director Unni Einemo says: “We will miss Henrik and Nigel who have been very active and driven board members. We are very grateful to both and hope they will remain active members of the Association in other ways, such as in our working groups. We have a great team in place for the year ahead, and I am confident the new board composition will continue to serve the interest of our members and build IBIA’s positive impact in the industry.”
