Global bunker trading firm, Glander International Bunkering, has announced the promotion of Morten Langthjem from Managing Director in Dubai to Chief Commercial Officer of the group. The role of Managing Director in Dubai will now be filled by Alexandros Margaritis, who rejoins the company to lead the team at its UAE headquarters.
According to Glander, the new appointments reflect the company’s aspirations at a transitional time in the maritime sector. Assuming the company’s first-ever CCO role, Langthjem will be working on business strategy, innovation and development, reporting to Glander International Bunkering’s CEO, Carsten Ladekjær.
Langthjem comments: “Our company has had a fantastic journey so far, and we are ready to develop and execute our new strategy that will further energise our position in the market. I am eager to be part of this process now, while Alexandros will be steering the Dubai team into new ventures and regional growth.”
Margaritis, who had a successful tenure in the Dubai office from 2011 to 2020, is ready to return back home. He says, “I am thrilled to rejoin my old team. I look forward to build on our capabilities and to navigate successfully through future changes in our industry with them.”
