One of the best known wheeler dealers in shipping is on the cover of Maritime CEO’s first issue of 2014. Chris Buttery, chairman of Epic Gas, features alongside the ceo of the fast growing gas owner. The pair are just two of 20 shipowners interviewed in the magazine.
Buttery became chairman of Epic Gas in the middle of last year – with his old Pacific Basin partner, Paul Over, also joining the board of the Singapore tanker owner.
As well as interviews with other top shipowners this issue of Maritime CEO contains leading economic commentary covering important regions. There’s market commentary from well-known analysts on the three main sectors, plus new columnist Dagfinn Lunde tackles finance while every edition of the magazine aims to tackle an important issue facing the industry; this time it’s where to access capital. Towards the back of the magazine is a more lifestyle section, orientated towards the busy maritime executive while at the back there is an acerbic column and results of the Maritime CEO Future of Shipping Poll conducted at the turn of the year.
