There can be few people who know Ultrabulk better than its chief executive, Hans-Christian Olesen.

He has worked for the company for 35 years and started in the top job back in March, taking over from Per von Appen, whose family is the controlling shareholder of the bulker operator.

But there is plenty for Olesen to tackle in the top job, especially in an environment where not only the needs and expectations of Ultrabulk’s customers are changing but the dynamics of markets too.
