Gulf Petrochem has announced that Thangapandian Srinivasalu has been hired as Executive Director for the group and member of the Board of Directors.

Thangapandian previously held the position of CEO for Marketing and IST at Essar Oil Limited, and Ashok Goel, Chairman of the Board at Gulf Petrochem, believes that he shares the same vision for a modern, innovative and globalised company that will stay ahead of the industry curve.

The new recruit will be charged with driving the company’s growth in new territories ranging from the Far East and East Africa to the Indian subcontinent and consolidation in the Gulf. 

Much of this growth is set to come from mergers and acquisitions, the UAE and India a particular target where Gulf Petrochem already has a strong influence.

It already has two refineries in the UAE, a terminal in Fujairah (UAE) and presence in six other markets, comprising a $2 billion business.

In managing the growth Thangapandian will also be responsible for uniting the six Gulf Petrochem divisions (in refining, storage terminals, trading and bunkering, bitumen and grease manufacturing and shipping and logistics) under a single system that will optimise business processes and enable trading across borders and departments.

Co-Founder and Managing Director of Gulf Petrochem Group, Sudhir Goyel was recently awarded “The Top Indian Leaders of the Arab World” by Forbes Middle East.

3 min
Take a look at our agenda for Procurement & Supply Chain Live, where innovation meets implementation, coming to you live from London

From September 28th-30th, network with C-level executives, gain insight from industry pioneers and walk away with actionable insights that accelerate your career. By the end of the week, we promise you’ll have the skills to solve the world’s most pressing supply chain and procurement challenges. 

The three-day show is an essential deep dive into the industry, with influential speakers sharing insights and strategies from their organisations, group roundtable discussions, and fireside chats. Whether you attend virtually or in person, you’ll strategise how to cope with global disruption, learn from industry leaders, and walk away with tips, tactics, and tangible connections. 


How to Attend


In a COVID-disrupted era, we know that the majority of people would rather avoid travelling for events─why take the risk, right? In response to the continued disruption, BizClik Media Group has decided that Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE will offer the best of both worlds through hybrid accessibility. 

That means you and your peers can attend the event in person or virtually ─ with no disadvantages for people who choose not to make the trip to the Tobacco Dock venue. 




Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE will be held at the Tobacco Dock in London, an industry-leading venue that is renowned for delivering world-class events. For attendees’ peace of mind, the venue is working to the government-endorsed AEV All Secure Framework, alongside mia’s AIM Secure and ‘Good to Go’ accreditation, they will ensure that we achieve a COVID-secure environment to facilitate all of your networking needs. 




Our physical venue is both historic and stunning, but it has no bearing on the information that you and your peers can gain from the event. You can still absorb it all, interact with other attendees, and enjoy the conference experience on your alternative, virtual platform. 

The platform will feature live feeds from all of the stages, as well as virtual networking areas. So, if you want to avoid travel, it’s not a problem! You can still get involved and enjoy the entire experience from the comfort of your own home.
