IMC Shipping has announced that it is expanding its dry bulk team with the appointment of Michael Holm as Managing Director, IMC Dry Bulk.
Based in Singapore, Holm will be responsible for IMC’s Dry Bulk business and work closely with IMC Dry Bulk commercial directors, Kim Tae Kyun and Keith Denholm, to execute on its asset-light strategy and grow its operating and liner businesses.
Frederik Guttormsen, Managing Director of Shipping, IMC Industrial Group, said: “We’re continuing to grow our dry bulk operating platform, as well as our other existing dry bulk businesses. We’re also exploring opportunities in new segments and continuing to integrate and optimise the full scope of capabilities within IMC Shipping. Michael’s broad experience and strong track record in dry bulk shipping, on both on the cargo and ship side, will be instrumental in guiding our further expansion, sustainability focus and value creation for our customers, partners and our community.”
With a career in the maritime industry spanning over 36 years, Holm has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in chartering and trading. He has held key positions in various shipping hubs across the world, including leadership roles at Metall und Rohstoff Shipping, Glencore International AG, and Trammo AG.
Holm shared: “I’m excited to be joining the IMC Shipping team in the backdrop of an outstanding year for the dry bulk market. In addition to building on our core strengths, we will also continue to forge synergies within the group to further develop our solutions-focused freight services.”
IMC Shipping also announced that it has brought Vincenzo De Falco on board to head Solution Shipping, as part of a broader strategy to bolster its shipping services capabilities. He will leverage IMC Shipping’s already strong technical and operational expertise in project management, transhipment services and supply chain management. De Falco has extensive experience in shipping and maritime logistics and joins IMC from Louis Dreyfus Armateurs.
Guttormsen added: “As a shipowner and operator, IMC Shipping takes a holistic view of the supply chain. Our diverse range of capabilities allow us to provide tailor-made logistics solutions for customers seeking a differentiated, efficient, and cost-effective transhipment experience.
