Jens Martin Jensen joins New Fortress Energy as head of shipping

Jens Martin Jensen, formerly John Fredriksen’s right hand man, has joined US-based clean energy company New Fortress Energy.

Jensen will be based in Miami, and takes up the role of head of shipping in a move telegraphed by an announcement last week by Australia’s Global Energy Ventures (GEV).

Jensen has left Pillarstone, where he was a partner, and also had to quit as a director of GEV to take up his new position.

New Fortress Energy is led by billionaire Wes Edens, who founded the company in 2014. Edens is also co-owner of Aston Villa Football Club and the Milwaukee Bucks .
