Story by Morrison O.G. Sayon
TOTAL-Liberia Inc. one of Liberia's best service providers has a new Manager to steer the affairs of the company. Mr. Robert Fenech, a British national is in the country as the new Managing Director of TOTAL-Liberia replacing Olivier Lassagne who has taken up new assignment in the West African state of Burkina Faso as the new manager in that country.
Addressing a news conference on Tuesday, the outgoing Managing Director of TOTAL-Liberia, Lassagne said the company has committed itself to the overall development of the country and will continue to honor its social responsibility in meeting the needs of the Liberian people.
Mr. Lassagne said since the arrival of TOTAL in Liberia in 2005, the company has extended its services not only in Monrovia but other parts of the country including Bomi, Lofa, Grand Bassa, Grand Cape Mount, among others.
He said TOTAL is not just providing services to the Liberian people but is also creating jobs for ordinary Liberians as well as helping Government in its strives to develop the country. Lassagne said TOTAL-Liberia is also providing quality services to the Liberian populace especially businesses and corporations in the country.
“We are providing fuel to some big companies including the Liberia Electricity Corporation, Roberts International Airport and Spring Field, AcerlorMittal and ships that dock at the various ports in the country. We are committed to this and will continue to provide the best of services to the people,” Mr. Lassagne said.
Commenting on his new role in Burkina Faso, Lassagne said he is taking the kind of experience he has acquired from Liberia to that country to improve the provision of services to the people of Bukina Faso. He said the major challenge he faced in Liberia while serving as Managing Director is the issue of the acquisition of land.
Also speaking, the new Managing Director of TOTAL-Liberia, Robert Fenech promised to build on the level of achievements of his predecessor by maintaining the supply of quality gasoline and fuel on the Liberian market.
He said though there are lots of challenges in the gas sector, his company will continue to work assiduously in providing quality products and work with Liberians in providing social services as part of its corporate responsibility.
Fenech has placed as his number one agenda, the availability of petroleum product on the Liberian market so as to stabilize the price of the commodity on the market.
