Your family has been in shipping for well over 100 years. When did you start your career in shipbroking?
I started in 1990 when telex was the way we communicated, then came fax, then the email harbinger GN-Comtext, and now email and supercomputer power in our palms, using smartphones. In those 80’s early days, which I am happy to have witnessed in real-time, we had ship advices on paper organised in folders and in dedicated storage rooms, or scattered around, spending most of our time trying to stay organised, or at least look organised. We even reached the point of hiring programmers ourselves, trying to explain to them the business of shipping, make them brokers and how we envisioned working practically making our daily processes into something that could be programmable.
