Tommy brings with him nearly 36 years of experience from the shipping industry as Owner/Broker/Charterer dealing in a variety of segments from handy size log carriers, car carriers, coal barges etc. As Tommy would say, “The whole color palette within drybulk shipping”.
The MARPRO team is very excited to welcome Tommy Lund as a Recruitment Consultant. MARPRO is steadily growing as the market is looking more and more for maritime specialists in finding the right shore-based employees. The MARPRO team has the right knowledge and understanding about the industry and its companies and has the network to find the right employee for an open maritime position.
Jakob le Fevre, owner of MARPRO elaborates:
“MARPRO have had a steady flow of shipping assignments over the last years, especially within the dry bulk segment and we are currently servicing reputable companies in Denmark, Singapore, Switzerland, Germany, Dubai and The Netherlands. Tommy brings valuable insight into this maritime niche and a very strong network. We are proud to be able to attract a profile with his unique experience”.
Tommy has been working in many different countries and has been exposed to the cultural challenges that follows with that. This has given him a deep understanding of working with people from different backgrounds, both in ethnicity and professionally. From Johannesburg, Hong Kong, Switzerland to Singapore in positions as bulk/dry cargo broker to be part of the freight management team responsible for Glencore’s worldwide coal freight trading book, Tommy has a long and interesting career behind him. Few people in the maritime industry are so well-connected, making him a familiar face in the international and Danish maritime marketplace.
Due his long career, Tommy has a deep understanding of the MARPRO clients’ recruitment needs and requirements. This makes Tommy, a skilled recruitment consultant, able to match the right candidates to the right companies.
I am thrilled to continue my maritime career as a recruitment consultant under the umbrella of MARPRO in Elsinore, where I am sure I can contribute positively with my vast expertise within the drybulk market. In this matter it is of great importance for me to remember, and to the candidates to remember as well a quote by Mr. Jimmy Dean, “I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”
The MARPRO team is very excited to have Tommy on board. His deep experience, knowledge and open-minded understanding of the world will complement the growing team of the seasoned MARPRO family.
