dship Americas Pivots with Positive Changes

Effective immediately, dship Americas is undergoing exciting and positive changes. The Houston office is delighted to welcome Mr. Stephen Garifalos as the new Director of Sales, North America and Mr. Kevin Turner as the Regional Head of Chartering, North America.

With over 40 years of experience, Stephen is a well-known expert in the breakbulk and project cargo industry, having led logistics teams as a carrier, exporter, importer, ship agent, and freight forwarder. With such a rich portfolio, he makes a perfect fit for the dship team and will certainly play a significant role in driving the company’s growth and success.

In over 2 decades, Kevin honed his chartering skills, and expanded his portfolio from bulk trades to heavy lift project chartering in the shipping industry. He brings an excellent understanding of the US and South American markets, providing him with a unique perspective to anticipate and meet clients’ needs.

“We are thrilled to have both Steve and Kevin on board. They bring a wealth of experience to our team and demonstrate our commitment to investing in our people to increase efficiency, streamline operations, and effectively implement management’s overall strategic objectives—all directed towards improving our services to our customers in the U.S. and globally,” said Lars Feller, President of dship Carriers. “The restructuring of our Houston office reflects our commitment to ensuring that our organization remains aligned with our core-values and that we continue to meet the evolving needs of our clients. The trust we have in our people is the foundation of our success. With their continued dedication and the expertise of our new colleagues, we will deliver even better results.”

Dea Chincuanco, Vice President of dship Americas, added, “We at dship believe and understand that trust is an essential component, especially within our niche industry. As Lolly Daskal once said, “Trust is built and maintained by many small actions over time”, which is why we are so proud and grateful to have Steve and Kevin as part of our Americas team. We look forward to serving the project breakbulk market with our combined knowledge, dedication, experience, and resilience, to take care of our customers’ business investments today and into the future.”

dship is excited about the future and the possibilities that come with the team’s expanded expertise and is confident that these positive changes will further enhance its capabilities and drive greater value for its clients.
