Eric Haughn

Chief Operating Officer

Eric Haughn co-founded Penfield Marine in 2012.

Prior to joining Penfield, Eric was at ST Shipping (part of Glencore). Eric was an integral part of the global trading team which was responsible for managing a fleet of owned and time-chartered oil and product tankers that reached upwards of 200 ships. Eric’s duties involved taking in tonnage from both the spot and time-charter markets to arbitrage between internal Glencore cargos, ST COA cargos, and third party market cargos. As part of the ST team, Eric was responsible not just for the trading of the ships, but also to create deals, shorts and various contracts so that the Glencore trading group could lock in long-term purchase and supply deals, while always having the best possible freight coverage in the market.

Prior to Eric’s career at Glencore, he was employed by Heidenreich Marine from 1991 to 2004. Eric started in operations, and was promoted to the chartering department where he learned chartering alongside Per Heidenreich. In 1997, Eric was transferred to Heidenreich Marine’s UK office and was promoted to Managing Director in 1999. He was subsequently transferred to Heidmar’s Singapore office as Managing Director of Heidmar Far East. Eric was the head of all chartering at Heidenreich Marine prior to joining Glencore.

Eric started in the shipping industry in chemical tanker operations with Hiltveit Associates in NYC.

Eric received a bachelor of science degree Oceanography and Meteorology from SUNY Maritime College (Fort Schuyler) in 1988.
