I was born in Pakistan but grew up in Birmingham and London where I have spent most of my life. I am the youngest of six siblings, and I have an MSc in banking and finance from Kingston University, London. I speak fluent Urdu, Punjabi, and Hindi, with English and Urdu being my mother tongues. I enjoy the buzz of working in a constantly changing environment which provides new challenges on a daily basis. I am a vibrant, persistent and innovative individual who is never shy of taking on a challenge, and I always look to increase and improve my knowledge for the better of our clients, my team, and of course myself.
Originally I’m from a strikingly beautiful country; Lithuania. Throughout my education and professional career, I have lived in Denmark, Brazil, and The Netherlands. I have been working in shipping since early 2016. I reflect a diverse personality including determination to achieve anything I have set my mind to and my qualities include integrity, loyalty and being supportive.
I am passionate about my work because I enjoy working in a fast paced, competitive environment and looking for the best bunkering solution.
In my free time I like doing sports, dancing, going for road trips and being around animals.
I was born in 1977, and I speak English, Chinese and Danish. I joined Dan-Bunkering in 2006 and still love this challenging business. Before Dan-Bunkering, I was involved in the commodity futures business for five years. I enjoy family life and travelling around in my spare time. At any time, I trust that the price of success is dedication, hard work, and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen.
I was born in the Republic of Moldova and at 16 years old I moved to France to pursue my studies. I did a Bachelor of Business and Administration at Kedge Business School and Aarhus Business School and then I followed with a specialized Master in Energy at Grenoble School of Business.
I started my energy career in the refining, trading & shipping industries in France, afterwards gained experience with fuel and shipping operations in Switzerland. During the trendy times of renewable energy, I took another challenge to explore and grow this business in Kazakhstan. Ultimately, my passion for oil and shipping industry pivoted me back into the fuel and shipping world.
During my free time, I enjoy playing chess, swimming, hiking in the mountains and sailing sea boats.
I am very excited to join the Dan-Bunkering group in which I truly hope to add value. I am delighted to contribute and look forward to bringing the best of my skills to the company’s continued success.

Before joining Dan-Bunkering, I had a six month internship at an offshore company in Singapore. I enjoy working in a fast pace environment, therefore working in the bunker industry enables me to face new challenges and tasks daily. I speak English and Mandarin Chinese fluently. I am a huge fan of sports and my passions include working out and travelling. I look forward to assisting you with your bunkering needs and requirements.
I am a Mexican and Danish national. I studied Engineering but I realized that what really motivates me is trading. Dan-Bunkering gave me the opportunity to trade bunkers, for which I feel fortunate, and I try to work creatively to supersede both the customers’ and company’s expectations. Previous experience in the fields of trading, marketing and sales facilitate my tasks, however, in this industry there is constantly something new and the learning process is also fascinating. I travel a great deal to meet new people from around the world, hearing their opinions, learning from them, and helping whenever appropriate. Whatever your needs may be, I will do my best to handle the matter professionally, personally, and find you a timely optimal solution.
I enjoy the competitiveness and culture diversity that comes with the bunker industry. Getting to know my clients and understanding their needs is one of my biggest motivations. I always strive to exceed my customers’ needs. Prior to Dan-Bunkering,, I worked bunkers handling Americas. Some of the things I enjoy about this industry is getting to learn about different cultures, traveling to personally meet my clients, and building a professional relationship that will allow me to always meet their expectations.
I am originally from Mexico and moved to Houston in 2000. I attended University of Houston and have lived in Texas ever since I moved to USA. I am fluent in English and Spanish. I am looking forward to assisting you with all your bunker needs and requirements.
Born and raised in Monaco, I grew up in a very culturally diverse environment. Before joining Dan Bunkering, I was working in yachting and the shipping industry. I worked for a large yachting company after I completed my BSBA in 2010 and ended my yachting adventure as a Charter Broker before I started working for a small shipping company between Monaco and Geneva. I find the bunker trading business very interesting due to the challenges and new experiences it provides. I speak French, English and picked up a bit of Italian over the years. In my spare time, I like to swim, run, and travel.
I have an engineering background and am passionate about solving customer issues, whether managing communication networks or optimizing oil supply in the largest pipeline in the US. I live in North Carolina and enjoy spending my weekends on outdoor activities with my wife and our son. Furthermore, I am a big Philadelphia Eagles fan. Rebuild is over, Go Birds!
