Today, the Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators (SIGTTO) has appointed industry veteran Chris Clucas as Interim General Manager until a permanent replacement for Andrew Clifton can be recruited.
Andrew's last working day in the secretariat will be March 4th 2022, and Chris is expected to be in the role for 4-6 months.
“I am very pleased that the society can welcome Chris as a very experienced hand to fill Andrew's role while we work on finding the right permanent candidate for the position,” said Steffen Jacobsen, SIGTTO President. “Chris is very experienced in the gas industry and fully familiar with the activities of the society.”
Chris Clucas is Principal at Liquefied Gas Consultancy Ltd, Isle of Man. As one of the most well-known names in the business of transporting liquefied gas by sea, he had around 50 years of working experience in the industry and has been appointed as past Chair of SIGTTO’s General Purposes Committee as well as past Chair of the SIGTTO Panel.
He was also elected Founder President of SIGTTO’s sister organisation, the Society for Gas as a Marine Fuel (SGMF) and is the current Secretary.
"I am honoured to take over the helm at SIGTTO during these very interesting times of change,” said Chris Clucas. “The key will be to ensuring that the Society responds to this fast-developing landscape, and continues the excellent support for members in the journey ahead - while never losing sight our excellent safety record.”
