Hoegh LNG’s chief to join Greece’s Angelicoussis as deputy CEO

Greek shipping giant Angelicoussis Group confirmed it has appointed Sveinung Stohle as the company’s new deputy chief executive officer.

Stohle announced this week he would leave Hoegh LNG after 15 years at the helm of the floating LNG player to pursue an alternative career opportunity based outside of Norway.

Several reports said that he would join the shipping giant led by Maria Angelicoussis. The company confirmed this in a statement on Tuesday.

Stohle has more than 25 years’ experience in LNG shipping and the wider energy and LNG space and he will join the group’s senior management team in Athens.

“I am delighted to welcome Sveinung as deputy CEO of the group,” Maria Angelicoussis said in the statement.

“Sveinung’s extensive industry experience will certainly add strength, depth, and quality to our existing senior management team. I am looking forward to working closely with Sveinung in relation to the many near term transitional challenges and opportunities in our industry,” she said.

The shipping group has currently 144 vessels in operation but also a further 12 on order, according to its website.

In addition, Angelicoussis operates a large fleet of LNG carriers via its unit Maran Gas.

Maran Gas has 40 LNG vessels in operation as well as 8 ships on order, the company’s website shows.
