Minerva Bunkering appoints CEO

Minerva Bunkering, the renamed and restructured Aegean Marine Petroleum Network, has appointed Tyler Baron as its chief executive officer.

Baron, who was on the board of Aegean through the restructuring, will be based in Geneva and will oversee Minerva’s global business operations across Europe, the Americas and Asia.

Magid Shenouda, global head of trading at Minerva’s parent company Mercuria Energy Group, commented: “Given Tyler’s history with and dedication to the company, as well as his breadth of experience in financial markets and capital allocation, he is the ideal candidate to lead Minerva Bunkering.”

Aegean filed for chapter 11 in New York last November as part of a rescue deal agreed with Mercuria.
