Gunvor Creates New Position to Focus on Safety, Health and Environment
Group SHE Manager will oversee sustainability for multi-billion
dollar industrial asset portfolio
GENEVA, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 06/04/14 -- To strengthen
its commitment to safety, health, the environment and the communities
in which it operates worldwide, Gunvor Group welcomes Benjamin
Winterton as Group SHE Manager. The Group SHE (Safety, Health &
Environment) Manager is a newly created position for Gunvor, which
seeks to ensure its expanding asset portfolio is integrated
effectively and managed to the highest standards.
Winterton joins from Glencore plc, where he served in risk and
internal audit. He has considerable experience developing corporate
programs for sustainability (safety, health, environment and
communities) and enterprise risk management-at Glencore, as well as
with Petroplus Marketing AG and for KPMG, where he worked with a
range of industrial clients. Winterton has also served as an
environmental policy adviser for the UK government.
"While Gunvor remains a trader at heart, the strategic investments
we've made in energy infrastructure-refineries, pipelines, storage,
terminals, mining and upstream-entail a new level of responsibility,
to our employees, the communities in which we work, and the
environment in general," said Jerome Schurink, Gunvor's Chief
Investment & Operating Officer. "Ben will be an integral part of our
team as we uphold our place as a good corporate citizen."
In the last several years, Gunvor has invested considerably in assets
that complement its core trading function, including the construction
of greenfield projects, the acquisition of wholly-owned assets, and
strategic investments worldwide. The company now maintains in excess
of US $2 billion in industrial assets throughout Europe, Asia, South
America and the United States.
