In his new position, Grønborg will optimise Bunker Holding’s market leader position by supporting the Group’s continued efforts to consolidate the international bunker industry, it said.

In his previous role, Grønborg managed the company’s global Marine portfolio and brand, heading up 250 employees across 22 offices.
“We are very excited to welcome Anders to Bunker Holding. It Is a testament to our position as market leader that we can attract such a high-profile industry candidate,” said Christoffer Berg Lassen, Bunker Holding Group.
“We see great value in his vast experience and industry know-how. Apart from managing and safeguarding many of Bunker Holding’s vital business areas, Anders will also be a significant sparring partner to Group Executive Management around innovation and potential future areas of operation.”
The company noted that Grønborg also brings with him a wide array of skills and a proven track record within commercial leadership and development, strategy, risk management, and M&As.
Prior to his role at World Fuel Services, he worked with Chemoil Corporation in Copenhagen and later Trans-Tec in London, which became World Fuel Services in 1995.
