Schoeller Holdings has big plans for the future as it works on its succession planning.

Chief executive Mark O’Neil told TradeWinds that the Cyprus-headquartered shipping group has used the past three years, which have been dominated by the pandemic, to sort out which of its businesses fitted where in the group.

O’Neil has a dual role, having been CEO of parent Schoeller Holdings, which owns ships, since 2019, as well as CEO of integrated maritime services platform Columbia Group since 2017.
