Industrial gas corporation BOC has appointed 30-year industry veteran John Evans as its new Managing Director of BOC South Pacific.

The company says that Evans, who is currently the Vice-Chairman of the Gas Energy Association and Head of the BOC Regional Executive Board, has “a deep understanding” of the BOC business after leading its subsidiary Elgas – Australia’s largest liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) marketer and importer.

Evans outlined future plans for BOC and stated, “We need to refine our organisation to support constantly changing markets. We are also innovating service models – from digital and online solutions, to a more agile retail network.”

“I look forward to working with our customers, industry and governments to ensure critical energy supplies and to foster a more research and scientific-based economy,” he added.
