Fednav is reorganising its shipping businesses into one department led by executive vice president Tina Revsbech.

The marine department will include Fednav’s chartering and operations teams, as well as the shipowning, technical and Arctic units.

In line with the reorganisation, Fednav has appointed Isabelle Brassard as senior vice president, logistics and sustainable development, effective September 2020.

Reporting to Paul Pathy, president and ceo, Brassard will oversee all land-based business activities, specifically Federal Marine Terminals and Fednav Direct. She will also be responsible for the development and implementation of the company’s sustainability initiatives, external relations, and marketing.

Brassard joins the company from Rio Tinto where she served as vice president, marine and logistics.

Given her experience in the mining sector, Fednav said that Brassard would also lend her expertise to the newly created marine division.
