Rob Nijst to step down as VTTI CEO
VTTI has announced that its founding CEO Rob Nijst will be leaving the company in September 2022 to pursue other opportunities. He will be succeeded by Guy Moeyens, who will join VTTI in July.
Since VTTI’s creation in 2006, Rob has overseen the growth and expansion of the company from four terminals to seventeen, with over 10 million m3 of storage capacity located across five continents. Managed by highly competent teams and with a mix of ultra-modern greenfield terminals and upgraded facilities, VTTI’s terminals are among the most advanced in the world and able to meet the demands of a constantly evolving market.
“We’ve built VTTI into a company that is well positioned to successfully address the challenges of the energy transition. It is led by a great team that feels truly engaged with this future,” Rob said. “I’m delighted to be handing over to such an experienced successor, well placed to take the business forward and drive our ambitious diversification agenda,” he added.
Guy Moeyens, his successor, is a seasoned energy-sector executive. He is currently responsible for all downstream and asset management at ADNOC, one of VTTI’s shareholders, and has represented ADNOC on the VTTI board since 2021. Previously served for almost 30 years in various roles at BP, his last position there being the Chief Operating Officer for Fuels in Europe and South Africa. In January 2021, Guy joined ADNOC, one of VTTI’s shareholders, where he was responsible for all downstream and asset management and represented the company on the VTTI board. This most recent role has provided him considerable insight into VTTI and its shareholders.
