Graduated from the University of Otago in, New Zealand in 2001 with majors in Geology and Finance, Peter moved to Sweden after spending 6 years in the FMCG industry. He then joined Carlsberg A/S and subsequently Maersk Oil Trading in 2009. Within Maersk Oil Trading, Peter progressed from initially having responsibility for sourcing in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and Africa. He then moved to trading Russia before taking over responsibility for the European trading desk in 2013. In 2017 he moved to Singapore to take over as Head of Trading East of Suez region where he leads a team of 6 to source, blend and supply bunker fuel to both the Maersk fleet and third party customers East of Suez. Under Peter’s watch Maersk Oil Trading Singapore has grown its operations significantly and was the 9th largest supplier by volume in Singapore in 2018.
As one of the world’s largest bunker end users, Maersk is acutely aware of the importance of a healthy and transparent bunker market. I will bring a passion and deep knowledge of global bunker
markets with the unique perspective of both a buyer and a supplier to the IBIA board.
