Singapore’s BW LPG has begun the search for a new chief financial officer after incumbent Elaine Ong announced her sudden departure.

In a regulatory filing on Friday, the Oslo-listed VLGC specialist said Ong had decided to step down as CFO to pursue other interests, with effect from today.

The shipowner added that Iver Baatvik, currently head of corporate development and investor relations, will act as interim CFO.
