|KPI Bridge Oil - offshoot of the Bunker Holding umbrella which forms part of United Shipping & Trading Company (USTC) group - has appointed Patrick Hoé as managing director of its Denmark operation.
Hoé joins KPI Bridge Oil from an international sales position in the wind power industry. Prior to this, he was employed as a senior bunker trader at another Bunker Holding business, A/S Dan-Bunkering, having started his marine fuel industry career there in 2010 and spending eight years at the firm.
Commenting on the appointment, Søren Høll, CEO of KPI Bridge Oil Group, said: "Patrick's diverse skillset and broad experience combined with his passion and supportive leadership approach will further advance the growth and development of our already well established team and operations in Denmark. Apart from being an excellent match for the team, Patrick's strong commercial mindset and expertise in strategic purchase and sourcing are also a perfect match for our business."
Hoé remarked: "Rejoining the bunker industry and joining KPI Bridge Oil, a global player in the market, at such a crucial time for the industry is both very exciting and demanding. The market is currently in a state of flux with many new risks and opportunities presenting themselves to virtually everyone in the supply chain. Offering the right support to - and pre-empting the expected challenges currently faced by - our business partners is vital to our success as a trader. For me, KPI Bridge Oil's partnership approach to business and focus on delivering long term sustainable solutions is a perfect fit, both on a personal and professional level."
