Symon Appointed New Director Of Tankers At Stolt-Nielsen

Stanley Symon has been named director of tankers at Stolt- Nielsen Inc, Greenwich, Conn., to succeed Per Heidenreich, according to an announcement by Jacob Stolt-Nielsen Jr., chairman of Stolt Tankers and Terminals. Mr.

Heidenreich is leaving the company to pursue other business interests.

Mr. Symon has 30 years of experience in the shipping industry. He began his seafaring career as an engineering cadet with BP, rising to chief engineer. In 1969, he was assigned to a technical position ashore with BP, and in 1974 transferred to the Commercial Division, subsequently becoming trade manager of BP Shipping in London.

In 1977, when the Stolt-Nielsen/ BP Shipping Limited agreement was made, Mr. Symon was seconded to Stolt-Nielsen Inc. in Greenwich.

Instead of returning to England when the secondment term was over, he decided to take up permanent employment with Stolt-Nielsen, first as manager of the Ship Management Department, and now as manager of the entire tanker business.

Mr. Symon is a chartered marine engineer, a fellow of the Institute of Marine Engineers, and a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Ship brokers. He has served as chairman of the board of the Liberian Shipowners' Council, and remains a member of the board. He also serves on Lloyd's Register North American Committee.
