After seven years away, a famous name in dry bulk is returning to Singapore.
Keith Denholm is leaving the US where he has been based throughout this decade for his old stomping ground in Southeast Asia where he is taking up the position of managing director for Norwegian broker Lorentzen & Stemoco’s Singapore operations.
Denholm, part of the famous Scottish shipowning family and still a director at J&J Denholm, told Splash: “It is an opportune time to return just as dry bulk looks like it is recovering.”
Oslo-headquartered Lorentzen & Stemoco has had a presence in Singapore since 1986. Other offices around the world include Athens, Hong Kong, London, New York and Shanghai.
Denholm was in Singapore from 2000 to 2010, working for Robert Kuok’s dry bulk lines, Pacific Carriers and Malaysian Bulk Carriers. After that he headed to the US to join Eagle Bulk before a near-six year stint as head of freight trading at Castleton Commodities International, formerly Louis Dreyfus Highbridge Energy.
