Lightship Chartering partners split to the wind

Lightship Chartering's partners split to the wind following a dramatic summer. The brokerage firm's chairman Morten Have tells ShippingWatch that he has received no explanation as to why several partners have turned their backs on the firm.

Four partners at Lightship Chartering have opted to depart from the otherwise up-and-coming Danish brokerage firm, effective immediately. The move concerns partners CEO Frank Mortensen, Mike Creaven, Kenneth Harritsøe and Thomas Stahl, all of whom - and allegedly to the surprise of chairman Morten Have - have opted to resign.

ShippingWatch spoke to three of the now former Lightship-execs Monday night, and none of them wished to comment on the situation, but several sources inform that disagreements broke out among the partners and that these disagreements were serious enough to cause a split at the otherwise renowned brokerage firm.
