October 27 - Effective January 1, 2016, Michel Dubois will become global head of Energy Solutions at Panalpina, replacing Hans Toggweiler.

Dubois is a long-standing Panalpina employee with over 30 years of experience having held various positions in Australia, France, Gabon and Switzerland. Since 2013, he has been the regional head of Energy Solutions for Europe and MEAC.

HLPFI readers may recall that Toggweiler joined Panalpina in June 2014. He became head of a new Energy Solutions unit, which was formed from the merger of the company's Panprojects and oil & gas activities to provide specialised tailor made transport solutions for the world's most ambitious energy projects.

He has led a programme to integrate a number of legacy operations into a single team and present a unified energy solutions team to the market.

HLPFI understands that Toggweiler will continue as a consultant to the Energy Solutions group.
