RUBiS in the Channel Islands has appointed Nicolas de Breyne as its new Managing Director, succeeding Arnaud Havard who has moved to a new role within the RUBiS global group.
Mr de Breyne has worked in the petroleum industry for his entire career, first with Shell and for the past four years with the RUBiS Group. He has moved to Jersey from Antilles/French Guiana, where he held the position of Sales Manager with responsibility for the company’s marketing and also acting as deputy Managing Director in French Guiana. Mr de Breyne grew up in Lyon, France where he obtained a Masters Degree in Marketing, then worked in various places including Pacific Islands.
Mr de Breyne will have responsibility in the Channel Islands for RUBiS’s extensive fuel import, storage and wholesale, and retailing operations. He recognises a number of unique challenges in Jersey and Guernsey because of the size of the market, tidal and weather conditions affecting supply routes and the need to deliver a broad range of products in small quantities
Mr de Breyne said: “I am delighted to take up this role in the Channel Islands and I am looking forward to building on the excellent work of my predecessor, Arnaud Havard. I have a great deal of experience of working in an island environment but there is no doubt that the Channel Islands present a number of unique challenges that need specific infrastructure and resource solutions.
"I have confidence that the skilled and professional team at RUBiS in Jersey and Guernsey will continue to meet those challenges and deliver the right products year round, and service that is of the highest quality.”
Mr de Breyne is married with three children.
