Bunker firm Monjasa has congratulated Morten Jacobsen on his 10-year anniversary at the firm.

During this period, Jacobsen has progressed from bunker trader trainee at Monjasa's Fredericia office in 2008 to bunker trader at the company's Singapore business, Monjasa Pte Ltd, in 2010, and then going on to become the firm's general manager in 2013 - a position he has now held for more than five years.

"In 2008, our General Manager in Singapore, Morten Jacobsen started out at our office in Fredericia, Denmark as a bright-eyed trainee hungry to learn about shipping and trading. Upon completion of Monjasa's two-year trainee programme, Morten was relocated to Singapore as our new local Bunker Trader. Reaching 2018, we are able to credit much of our growing presence and strong personal relations in Southeast Asia to the knowledge, hard work and leadership of Morten," Monjasa said.

"We always appreciate your humble attitude and very importantly, your contribution to the great atmosphere at the office with positive attitude, infectious laughter and jokes. Happy 10 years [sic] anniversary, Morty!" the company added.
