With their leadership, our customers will receive safe and reliable services that will be more efficient because our markets, processes and technology are even more integrated.

Crowley Maritime Corp. announced today it has appointed four industry veterans to oversee the consolidated lines of business under the recently formed Crowley Shipping group, which provides petroleum and chemical transportation, commercial ship management, offshore energy support, and ship assist and tanker escort services in the U.S. and international markets.
The new business unit structure better aligns vessel operations and services with customers, positioning Crowley for greater growth and efficiency under Rob Grune, senior vice president and general manager. Leadership of Crowley Shipping’s lines of business includes:
“Each of these individuals is highly qualified and has a record of delivering solutions and services that benefit customers,” Grune said. “With their leadership, our customers will receive safe and reliable services that will be more efficient because our markets, processes and technology are even more integrated.”
Crowley is underway with a transition of its non-liner and logistics business units into three main business units – Crowley Shipping, Crowley Fuels and Crowley Solutions. Crowley Fuels includes Crowley’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) sales, distribution and engineering unit, and the company’s fuel sales and distribution business in Alaska. Crowley Solutions consists of engineering and project management services; naval architecture and engineering through subsidiary Jensen Maritime; government vessel management; and a unified government business development team.
This orderly and transparent transition is allowing the corporation to stay keenly focused on running the business with the same reliable service customers have come to expect over Crowley’s long history.
Jacksonville-based Crowley Holdings Inc., a holding company of the 125-year-old Crowley Maritime Corporation, is a privately held family and employee-owned company that provides marine solutions, energy and logistics services in domestic and international markets.
