ZHANG IS APPOINTED MANAGING DIRECTOR OF COSCO BULK CARRIER
Captain Zhang Liang has been appointed managing director
of COSCO Bulk Carrier, the world’s largest specialized bulk shipping company.
Zhang had been deputy managing director of the Tianjin-based company
since November 1998.
Previously, he had been marine superintendent, manager of the personnel
division, general manager assistant and deputy general manager of Tianjin Ocean Shipping
Co., a company which later merged into COSCO Bulk Carrier.
COSCO Bulk Carrier – or Cosbulk – owns over 80 bulk carriers of all
types with the total deadweight tonnage of 4.8 millions tons.
The appointment of Zhang by the China Ocean Shipping Co. group is the
second major management change within the major shipping subsidiaries of the group in
recent weeks. Xu Lirong was named head of COSCO Container Lines last month.
