March 21, 2019

GREENWICH, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 21, 2019--Diamond S Shipping Inc. announced today that Kevin M. Kilcullen is joining the company as its 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, Kilcullen was CFO at Principal Maritime LLC, a private equity backed owner of crude and chemical tankers.

“We’re delighted that Kevin has agreed to join us as we begin our next chapter with the Capital Product tanker merger and listing on the New York Stock Exchange,” said Craig H. Stevenson, Jr., CEO of Diamond S. “Kevin has a wealth of financial, reporting and operating experience in global shipping and joins an already formidable senior management team at just the right time,” Stevenson added.

“I’m grateful for my time at Team Tankers and wish them continued success,” Kilcullen said. “Diamond S has one of the world’s largest tanker fleets, a cost-efficient management platform and a sound balance sheet. The company is listing in the public market at a cyclically opportune time and is well positioned for future industry consolidation. Craig and the team have built a world-class vessel owner/operator from scratch and I’m thrilled to be coming aboard,” Kilcullen added.
