Making the announcement, TGAM President, Paul Daulerio said, "We continuously strive to provide the best possible service to our customers. The organizational changes we are announcing today will enable us to provide our customers around the world with a simpler, more seamless organization to work with. In addition, I believe changing our name to Texaco Global Aviation Marketing better reflects our approach to doing business and will help to reinforce our position as a key player in the global aviation fuel sales market."

  • TGAM's Singapore office, which handles jet fuel sales in Asia and the Pacific Rim, will be joined with the Group's London office, and group Vice President, John Digby will manage Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia, and Pacific Rim marketing activities from London.
