Gary started his career in 1993 at Marc Rich trading company and, in 1996, became head of Glencore’s worldwide shipping department (previously Marc Rich). He oversaw a T/C fleet expansion from 4 vessels to 85 vessels (of over 3m dwt) by 2003 as ST Shipping became one of the world’s largest product tonnage operators. During this period, he was involved in JV purchases of 10 new-build product tankers, and ST became one of Glencore’s leading profit centres. In 2003, he left Glencore and, together with Nicolas Busch, co-founded FR8 which became one of the fastest growing and most dynamic tanker freight trading companies. Following the sale of their majority stake in FR8 in 2007, Gary co-founded Navig8 Group where he acts as Group Chairman. Gary is based in the UK and covers all commercial areas of shipping.
