Eagle Bulk Shipping has announced that it will be expanding its global commercial presence with the establishment of a new office in Hamburg, Germany.
The Hamburg office will be led by Jan-Philipp Rauno, who served most recently as a partner with Mosvold Bulk Shipping.
“We continue to invest in Eagle Bulk’s commercial operating platform to help deliver above market results and become the world’s premier Supramax owner/operator. The establishment of our Hamburg office is an important milestone in this process as it ensures proximity to significant European chartering relationships while complementing our existing footprint in Connecticut and Singapore. Eagle Bulk’s presence in the U.S., Asia and Europe will serve as a key strategic and competitive advantage moving forward. We are confident, as well, that Japhi is the right person to lead our European commercial operations, and we look forward to his immediate contributions,” said Gary Vogel, ceo of Eagle Bulk.
