Managing Director, BSM Germany
BSM appoints new Managing Directors in Germany, Singapore and Cyprus
BSM has enhanced its senior management team with the appointment of three new Managing Directors in Germany, Singapore and Cyprus.
Nick Topham heads BSM Germany based in Hamburg, Raymond Peter is his BSM Singapore counterpart and Nick Kretsis has taken on the role of Managing Director in BSM Cyprus.
Topham’s extensive leadership experience of 20 years in the shipping industry was shaped through senior roles at MPC Steamship, Ahrenkiel Steamship and Borealis Maritime, prior to joining BSM. He is a qualified Marine Engineer with many years of sea-going experience and specialises in containerships, bulk carriers and chemical tankers.
Raymond’s dedication to shipping is evident from his 32 years of service, including 13 years at sea. He is vastly experienced with chemical tankers, bulk carriers, containerships, gas and offshore vessels, having worked both for ship owning and ship management companies.
A qualified Marine Engineer, Kretsis brings 29 years of professional experience with him in the shipping and oil & gas industries. He served in various roles within the shipping sector, working his way up from Deputy Technical Director, to Newbuilding Director for LOMAR Shipping, and then from Fleet Director to Manging Director of BSM Cyprus.
All three gentlemen bring a wealth of experience with them and are a great addition to BSM.
