Christoffer Berg Lassen, the COO of Bunker Holding, on Thursday (6 December) won the Rising Star Award (Individual) at the 20th S&P Global Platts Global Energy Awards.
Lassen started his career as a trainee at a Bunker Holding Group subsidiary 13 years ago and now oversees the group’s 43 businesses in 26 countries.
The company has reported increased sales in a decreasing market and a rise in global market share.
“I am extremely proud and honored to be recognised by S&P Global Platts and the panel of international energy experts,” says Christoffer Berg Lassen.
“As a finalist I faced tough competition from a number of highly skilled peers – and I look forward to celebrate this recognition with my teams who have worked hard to achieve great business results.”
Despite his youth, Lassen is considered a veteran at transforming strategy into operational and commercial success, having shepherded three M&A transactions in less than four years.
“He is a true dealmaker,” marvelled judges.
