After showing great promise as a trader, he was fast tracked to his employers’ well-known shipping hub ARA, operating out of Rotterdam.

The primary focus of his work includes; sourcing in ARA, hedging, and business development for bunker fuels, and in particular LNG, biofuels, and offsets, bringing a young, energetic and wide perspective into his daily work life and surrounding team.
