Temasek-owned LNG player Pavilion Energy has named Alan Heng as interim chief executive officer, effective August 26.
Heng will replace Frédéric H. Barnaud who has elected to step down as CEO and return to Europe to be with his family, according to a Pavilion statement.
Barnaud has laid a “strong foundation” for Singapore’s Pavilion with the development of its LNG business and its expansion into Europe, Pavilion chairman, Tan Sri Mohd Hassan Marican, said in the statement.
“On behalf of the board, management and staff, I would like to thank Frédéric for his leadership of Pavilion Energy in the past three and a half years,” he said.
On the other side, Heng is currently the managing director – Asia at Pavilion.
He joined the company in 2013 and “has been instrumental in developing its activities in the Singapore hub.”
He has been in the energy industry for 33 years and was previously in various management positions in ExxonMobil.
