Infospectrum continues to add strength to its Asian operations with the arrival of Nikolaos Deonas (Nikos) in the Singapore office. With over 15 years of experience in physical bunkers and products procurement, trading and marketing, technical expertise in blending, shipping and storage, Nikos brings a deep understanding of market conditions, trade and operations.   From early 2008, Nikos managed Cargill’s global bunker procurement desk as well as handling operations for their physical delivery fuel oil forward contract initiative.  Moving on from Cargill in 2012, Nikos joined ICAP Energy in Geneva from where he traded bitumen, bunkers and distillates, and brokered biodiesel products.  Nikos then moved to Singapore to set up ICAP’s physical oil broking desk.  Choosing to take a sabbatical, Nikos continued to operate between Geneva and Singapore as an independent consultant working on feasibility studies, analysis and research in the energy and transportation industries. Nikos is an MIT graduate with an MSc in Transportation and completed his BA in Business Administration in Greece.  With a mix of Greek and Swiss heritage he also speaks English, French and Bahasa Indonesia.   Infospectrum’s Managing Director, Panos Panousis commented  “As a company that values breadth of experience as much as specialist knowledge in its pool of talented analysts we are extremely pleased that Nikos has chosen to further his already remarkable career here at Infospectrum.  We are very confident that Nikos will quickly gain the confidence of the bunker market and reinforce Infospectrum as the provider of choice in this sector”. Nikos added:  “Credit risk is now one of the most critical components in the business decisions of every participant in the shipping and commodities trading world.  I am very much looking forward to bringing together my background in oil trading & risk management with my analytical skills to help Infospectrum cement its place as the primary business intelligence provider in the industry.”
