Diamond S Shipping Taps Kilcullen as CFO
US-based tanker owner Diamond S Shipping Inc. said it has appointed Kevin M. Kilcullen as its new Chief Financial Officer.
Kilcullen comes to Diamond S from Oslo-listed chemical and product tanker owner/operator Team Tankers International Ltd., where he served as CFO for three years. Prior to that, he was CFO at Principal Maritime LLC, a private equity backed owner of crude and chemical tankers.
Diamond S Shipping Inc. expects to become an NYSE-listed company with the closing of its combination with the crude and product tanker business of Capital Product Partners L.P. later this month. The firm will own 16 crude and 52 refined product tankers.
“The company is listing in the public market at a cyclically opportune time and is well positioned for future industry consolidation,” Kilcullen said.
