Specialised Products relaunches Projects desk
Clarksons is delighted to announce that Anthony Rowan has been appointed as Head of the Projects desk within the Specialised Products division. The appointment marks the beginning of a revised focus and objective for the desk which will perform a more integrated role across new building, sale & purchase, and time charter.
Anthony Rowan has been with Clarksons for 12 years and brings a unique dynamic to the leadership of the desk. With a background in Specialised S&P broking, the move will embed Anthony within the Specialised Chartering division to ensure a more comprehensive offering to clients, with experience and value being applied across the asset life cycle.
Commenting on his new appointment, Anthony says: “I look forward to building on the success of the projects desk and evolving our offering to ensure a more unified service that can leverage the unrivalled experience, insight, and ideas available within the team, for the benefit of our clients. The market is in a very exciting place right now with a growing imperative to move towards cleaner shipping – whether that is through fleet renewal or operations, the Clarksons Specialised Products Projects team is already working closely with our clients to achieve their objectives with long-term game plans.”

Global Head of Specialised Products, Jon Webber says: “We have a unique opportunity to establish a project desk that is completely entrenched within the chartering team. It’s rare to have this in shipping markets. Couple that with Anthony’s leadership, the energy and ambition that exists within the personalities of the team, and the insight that can be applied from our dedicated analysts, it paves the way for very positive outcomes in terms of how we work with clients and can deliver greater value to them.”
The reformation and relaunch of the projects desk is the result of a carefully curated team of brokers that can provide a crucial link between the S&P and period markets, alongside established chartering experience. Anthony leads the team from London with brokers Sinan Berden and Alex Anderson, and will be focusing on deepening existing client relationships and exploring new opportunities across Singapore, Dubai, Houston, Oslo, and London.
