John Fredriksen's tanker giant Frontline is no longer what it used to be. About one year ago, Robert Hvide Macleod took the top position as CEO of the tanker carrier and since then major changes have taken place.

Among other things, he has executed the plans for the anticipated merger between Fredriksen's Frontline and Frontline 2012 melting the two tanker carriers into just one on November 30th - and since December 1st the new carrier has been trading on the Oslo Stock Exchange. On that same date, former CEO Jens Martin Jensen opted to bid farewell to Frontline after eleven years.
