27 Feb 2018 • by Trond Lillestolen

Lars Modin is taking over as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of open hatch bulker owner Masterbulk. This Singapore based company is the owning company of Westfal-Larsen’s bulker activities.

Shipowner Rolf Westfal-Larsen confirms the appointment of Modin and says he is starting in the job this month.

Masterbulk has a fleet of 20 open hatch gantry crane vessels and was established in Singapore in 1995. Modin has a background from V.Ships and International Tanker Management and has also worked with Stolt-Nielsen.

Former CEO Nicholas Fisher left Masterbulk last June and was temporarily replaced by chairman Stephen Fordham.
