In T&T: NP’s new CEO: There’s a lot to fix

20 March 2012

New NP head cites “marketing and business development” as his main targets.

Kenny Mohammed is the new chief executive officer (CEO) of the National Petroleum Marketing Company (NP).
Mohammed replaces Richard Callender, who was fired in April 2011 for extending a $24 million credit facility to a service station owner.
Rajkapoor Ramlochan had been acting as CEO in the interim.
Mohammed started the job March 1, and his initial contract is for three years.
He is an accountant and marketer by training and has spent over 20 years out of Trinidad working with Texas-based oil and gas drilling company Global Santa Fe (now part of Transocean). He has also managed oil rigs in Angola and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Speaking briefly to the Express at a sod-turning ceremony yesterday for a Compressed Natural Gas service station at the Public Transport Service Corporation (PTSC) at City Gate, Port of Spain, Mohammed said there was “a lot to fix” at the State-owned fuel distribution company.
NP has struggled in its main focus—marketing and business development—and that is what my main focus will be,” he said.
