Spinnaker is thrilled to be working with a recently formed bulk shipping company on their new General Manager position in Singapore. After a strong year of growth our client is looking for someone to head the business and lead them through the next growth phase. Our client is in an advantaged position of being the shipping arm of a major European Grain trader that is currently accelerating their business out of Europe.

This position will be based in their HQ in Singapore and will lead the global chartering team overseeing individuals in their other satellite offices. This person will also be provided with mandate for international growth of the team.

The successful candidate will report directly to the Chairman, assuming a pivotal role to support the business’ short- and medium-term growth aspirations. You will manage the company’s global operations, mentoring the global chartering team to build triangulation cargo and tonnage opportunities and provide intelligent freight guidance to support and enhance shareholder freight requirements.
