Tanker owner-operator AET, part of Malaysia’s MISC, have appointed Captain Rajalingam Subramaniam as President & CEO.
Rajalingam, a hugely respected tanker industry figure, has been overseeing the running of AET since July alongside his fleet management role at MISC.
Yee Yang Chien, president and CEO of parent company MISC, said: “I am extremely pleased that Captain Raja has been confirmed in the role of President and CEO of our petroleum subsidiary. AET is a core part of the MISC Group and will play a significant part in our future. Before moving to MISC in 2008, Captain Raja headed AET’s shipmanagement division and so he has an in-depth understanding of the company he is now to head-up. I have every confidence that he will continue to uphold the high standards that our customers and other stakeholders rightly demand from an ocean carrier.”
Rajalingam sailed onboard MISC vessels before serving ashore as a marine superintendent. He was appointed head of AET Shipmanagement in 2005, then moved to MISC in 2008 as vice president of shipmanagement services. He currently serves on the board of several MISC subsidiaries and joint venture companies.
