    TOTE Services' Philip Greene Jr. retires next year

    Rear Admiral (USN-Ret.) Phil Greene Jr. has announced his retirement from TOTE Services effective January 4, 2019. Culminating a maritime career spanning more than 40 years between his navy, government and private sector careers, Greene has served proudly as President of TOTE Services since 2013, overseeing some of the most successful and challenging years in the company’s 43 year history, the Company said in a media release.

    “Phil has been a strong and humble leader for the TOTE Services team. During his time, he has built an exceptional team committed to leading and innovating in the vessel management industry” noted Tim Nolan, President and CEO of TOTE.

    Under Greene’s leadership, TOTE Services emerged as leaders in liquefied natural gas maritime technology and expanded its portfolio of government and commercial vessels currently being managed by the company, which now includes 28 vessels. Greene has built strong partnerships with the some of the best maritime unions in the country ensuring that TOTE’s vessels as well as TOTE Services’ customers benefit from a talented and knowledgeable labor force day in and day out.

    Jeff Dixon will succeed Greene as President of TOTE Services. Dixon currently serves as Vice President for Marine Operations – Government and Commercial for the company. Dixon has been with TOTE Services since May 2017. Over the coming months, Greene and Dixon will work closely together to ensure a smooth transition for partners and customers.

    Following his departure from TOTE Services, Greene will continue to serve in a senior advisory role to TOTE, providing his government and industry expertise to the organization.

    TOTE Services has been known by several names in its lifetime – Interocean Management Corporation, Interocean Ugland Management Corporation, Interocean American Shipping and now TOTE Services, continuing its proud history of providing operation and management services for third-party ship owners of both foreign and U.S. flag vessels owned by affiliated companies. The original predecessor of TOTE Services was part of a company founded in 1974 as IOT Corporation. IOT Corporation was located in Philadelphia, PA as a result of a merger of three long-standing maritime firms: Interstate Oil Transport (from Phila.), International Ocean Transport Corp. (from NY, NY), and Grand Bassa Tankers, Inc. (from Liberia). International Ocean Transport was formed from the maritime assets of Cities Service Oil Company. In 1982 the original owners sold IOT Corporation splitting the assets of Interstate Oil Transport and International Ocean Transport into two separate companies. International Oil Transport became Interocean Management (IOM) which is TOTE Services today.
