Aegean president departs

Marine fuel logistics company Aegean Marine Petroleum Network (AMPNI) has announced that its president Jonathan McIlroy will leave the company effective November 15.

Kostas Polydakis, who was appointed to the position of chief operating officer in August, will assume McIlroy’s duties.

Aegean also announced that it has appointed Mecuria executive David Gallagher to the board of directors, part of a $1bn deal announced in July and completed in August which gives Mercuria a 30% stake in Aegean.

Donald Moore, chairman of AMPNI, commented: “I want to express my thanks to Jonathan McIlroy for his service as President of AMPNI. I am delighted that Kostas Polydakis is taking on additional responsibilities at AMPNI. He has already distinguished himself in the role of chief operating officer, and I am confident that he will continue working tirelessly to shape and execute the company’s strategy. I am likewise pleased to welcome David Gallagher to AMPNI’s Board, and I look forward to the key role he will play in helping to oversee the company’s long-term growth strategy.”
