International bunker supplier Dan-Bunkering on Monday (27 January) announced the employment of four new Bunker Traders for the office in Dubai.
The latest hiring makes the Middle Eastern office, established in 2013, the largest office of the Dan-Bunkering group in terms of number of Traders.
The appointment yet again consists of people with different nationalities; something which is quite characteristic for the Dubai office but also for the organization in general, says the company.
“We are a very diverse office and have been so from the beginning, and I am very pleased and proud to manage and lead a team in an environment with such a variety of cultural backgrounds,” commented Dan-Bunkering Managing Director Kasper Fulton Stiedl.
