Veteran shipping executive Mads Peter Zacho is days away from starting what he calls “a dream job come true for me” at the helm of New York-listed gas player Navigator Holdings.

The former J Lauritzen and Torm executive has high hopes both for the LPG/petrochemicals market and for Navigator’s continued role as a leader and consolidator in the sector, he told TradeWinds in a recent interview.

“The job here with Navigator is a natural extension of a path I’ve been on for many years,” Zacho said.
