Shipbroking group Fearnleys has made a new hire for its tanker desk in London and hopes to expand further within the capital.

Himanshu Sharma has been hired to join the Norwegian group’s tanker activities in London from rival broker Braemar, where he has worked for 16 years.

Fearnleys described Sharma as a “well-known name in the tanker industry with strong ties to clients in his native country India as well as international-based owners and charterers”.
