Belgian marine fuel supplier United Bunkers has hired a new director from Trefoil.
Michael De Boeck has joined United Bunkers earlier this month as director, based in Antwerp, according to an update to his LinkedIn profile.
De Boeck was previously a bunker trader for Trefoil in Antwerp, and had earlier served as CEO of Northstar Bunker.
United Bunkers supplies various grades of marine fuels at the ARA hub in Northwest Europe, where it operates ten barges.
The company targets annual sales of 1.2 million mt, according to its website.
The past two years have seen an unusually active jobs market for the bunker industry, with the COVID-19 pandemic and the IMO 2020 transition delivering consolidation and creating new opportunities.
