Oldendorff Carriers have worked closely with Spinnaker for well over 10 years. We are members of the Maritime HR Association and we also use Spinnaker to recruit staff at all levels of our organization up to and including the Board level, most recently our CFO. Spinnaker have recruited around 20 to 30 members of staff for us in Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and America in commercial, technical, finance, legal and operations. ​I am happy to recommend Spinnaker personally and wholeheartedly. Phil and his team have earned our trust and respect for their in-depth market knowledge and their confidential and ethical approach. We have been more than happy with the outstanding services that Spinnaker provided us for so many years now.​ – Henning Oldendorff, President & CEO, Oldendorff Carriers
