Bradley Dietz, Independent Director, commented: “Pioneer Marine believes it continues to be well-positioned to serve the dry bulk industry, evaluate strategic acquisition opportunities, while benefitting from improving dry bulk market fundamentals. Additionally, the Board thanks Mr Khanna for his service to Pioneer Marine and wishes him continued success in his career.”
