Adrian Tolson to manage physical and trading divisions as company looks to implement significant recruitment drive to fuel growth and increase capacity.

OW Bunker, one of the world’s largest suppliers and traders of marine fuels and lubricants, announced that Adrian Tolson was appointed to the new role of Regional Manager for the company’s North American operation. Mr. Tolson joined OW Bunker in October 2012 to develop the physical division in North America; he will now head up both trading and physical operations. The move is part of the company’s strategy to create strong leadership within its key global regions and to deliver controlled expansion and increase capacity within North America.

As part of the development, OW Bunker is also in the process of implementing a significant recruitment drive to help facilitate its growth ambitions. The company has moved to new offices in Stamford, Connecticut, where its regional physical division is headquartered, and it also has a trading operation based in both Stamford and Houston.

“The North American market is facing real regional change over the next few years, in addition to other global economic and regulatory influences, which will have a significant impact on the dynamics of the local bunker market,” said Adrian Tolson, Regional Manager, OW Bunker North America. “However, with any change, also comes great opportunity. And we are confident that we can deliver rapid, yet controlled expansion, as we look to further develop our customer base and infrastructure within the region. Critically, our people are central to delivering this, and we are actively looking to recruit more staff to help support the expansion process.”
