Excelerate appoints Bangladesh head

US floating LNG player Excelerate Energy said Monday it promoted Habibur Rahman Bhuiyan to head up the firm’s business unit in Bangladesh.

Texas-based Excelerate said in statement Bhuiyan will take on the role of country manager – Excelerate Bangladesh.

Furthermore, this move is part of a broader reorganization of the company, as Excelerate looks to continue building on its existing local pool of skilled Bangladeshi employees to expand its presence within all facets of the country’s energy sector, it said.

Habib joined the firm in 2018 as terminal operations manager of the Moheshkhali floating LNG terminal, where he oversaw the daily operations of Bangladesh’s first LNG import terminal.

Additionally, Habib has a long-decorated history in the Bangladesh Navy spanning 36 years. Outside the navy, he most recently held the position of managing director of Bangladesh Shipping Corporation, a state-owned company that provides freight-forwarding services to the local exporters, importers, and business houses.

He also served as the chairman of the Mongla Port Authority, which has a significant role in the overall economic development of the southwestern part of the country, Excelerate said.
