The Baltic is delighted to announce that following unanimous approval by the firms of FFA Broker Association, Ben Courtney of ICAP has been elected as Chairman of the Tanker FFABA. Ben has been with ICAP for eight years and heads the Tanker FFA team. The FFABA, supported by the Baltic Exchange, represents and encompasses the global FFA broking community, the tanker section of which has been led by Jay Lovell of Braemar ACM for the past two years. We thank Jay for his commitment during his tenure and wish Ben well for his forthcoming year at the helm.
Ben’s role compliments the FMIUG Wet Chair who has the role of representing the tanker trading community. Will Leslie of Trafigura was recently elected to this position, also with the unanimous support of his colleagues from across the sector.
