These past three decades of conducting sales, charters, and general market consult have allowed me to expand my knowledge in the commercial shipping industry. Every day is a new day, and the market is constantly changing. It is my hope, and those of the employees at Marcon, that our mutual experience and activity allow our company to offer these insights to Marcon’s clients in the hopes of providing first class service related to transactions in the commercial maritime markets.”
