Glander International Bunkering Training Academy goes from strength to strength, promoting two former interns

October 20, 2016

Nearly three years after the launch of Glander International Bunkering’s Training Academy, the firm are pleased to announce the promotion of two more successful interns; Kevin Lundgaard
and Manos Gryllakis. Both interns were initiated into the programme
in November 2015 and after superseding the internship’s expectations, they have been working as qualified Bunker & Lubricant Traders.

Taking part in Glander International Bunkering’s internship is a demanding task, but one that paves the way for a promising career as a commercial trader.
The programme is structured in a way that draws on theory and practical based learning whilst simultaneously training them in the core skills required to be a commercial trader.
Furthermore, each intern is guided through the programme
by a mentor who is still trading for Glander International Bunkering – giving the internship a competitive edge compared to others in the industry.

Kevin Lundgaard, Bunker & Lubricant Trader, Dubai, prides himself on his commitment to his clients and is recognised in the industry for his ability to understand situations from their perspective.
Making reference to the skills that he learnt from the Training Academy, which are now being put to the test as a fully qualified Bunker & Lubricant Trader, Kevin comments:

“The quality of the programme’s mentors really heightened my learning experience.
The mentors are experienced traders who are still trading at the time of teaching, therefore their knowledge and tips are as current and as relevant as could be.”

Manos Gryllakis, Bunker & Lubricant Trader, Dubai, primarily focusses his services in and around the Mediterranean ports, as well as smaller UAE/AG ports. When representing his clients, he is highly competitive, ensuring their bespoke needs are at the forefront of all operations. Manos respectively gives thanks to the Training Academy for this, noting:

“In order to qualify for the Training Academy you must be results-driven and determined. Throughout the programme these skills are only reinforced through vigorous task orientated projects – it really is the best initiation into life as a commercial trader.”

Commenting on the promotion of Kevin and Manos, Christoffer Berg Lassen, CEO and Managing Director of Glander International Bunkering, says:

“It is with great pride that I announce Kevin and Manos as Bunker and Lubricant Traders – they are excellent representations of the abilities and power that the Training Academy holds within the industry.
Both traders have proven to be resilient, true team players – and are an integral part of the group.”
