Monaco-based GasLog Ltd (NYSE: GLOG  ) has a new COO.

The international operator of liquefied natural gas tankers announced Friday that it has promoted Executive Vice President for Operations and Strategy Graham Westgarth to the post of Chief Operating Officer.

Westgarth joined GasLog in January, arriving from rival tanker operator Teekay Shipping, where he had served in management since 1999.
