NORDEN will open office in Melbourne, Australia
NORDEN is expanding our global reach by opening a new office on the Australian continent.
We have done business with Australian counterparts for many years and by opening an Australian office we aim to build stronger relationships with existing brokers and charterers through increased contact and physical meetings on a formal as well as informal basis.
The NORDEN office in Melbourne will report to NORDENs regional office in Singapore.
During the last decade, we have experienced a centralisation of dry bulk activities in and around Singapore – and rightfully so, our own setup in Singapore is adding much value to our business. Now setting up an office in Melbourne is going 'against the current' – against the latest trends but we are confident that it will add value to our business as well – we are expanding our global reach and moving closer to our customers in the process – it will be a good supplement to our existing Singapore setup
The office will be operational during first quarter of 2015 and headed by Mr Christian Hornum, Chartering Manager who from his time working for NORDEN in Singapore has extensive knowledge of the Australian market and worked with a variety of customers and clients on the continent. He will be joined by Mr Mads M. Simonsen, Assistant Chartering Manager.
