New Broker Joins Marcon

by Hans | June 7th, 2011

Marcon International, Inc. of Coupeville, Washington is pleased to announce that Jon Thielemann has joined their brokerage staff.  Marcon now has seven full-time brokers plus four administrative staff tracking over 14,000 vessels and barges worldwide.

Jon began his commercial marine industry experience in 2001, involved first in Sales and Purchase/Chartering brokerage for Barry Rogliano Sales USA in the Offshore Support Vessel markets and Tanker markets with Lone Star R.S. Platou, Inc. in Houston. He spent the past four years as a Tanker derivatives (FFA) broker located in Houston for Imarex Inc. and in New York for Poten Energy Services.

Jon is a graduate of Texas A&M University at Galveston with a BS in Maritime Administration. A native Houstonian, Jon is now enjoying the cooler weather and the scenic Pacific Northwest to raise his family.

Bob Beegle, President and founder of Marcon commented:  “We are very lucky to have Jon join our brokerage team at this time. The global S&P market for second-hand workboats has been relatively flat for the last couple of years, but there is movement and the market is gaining momentum. We are looking towards and preparing for the future not only by hiring new staff, but by writing extensive new custom software to assist in tracking and mining our ever-expanding ‘in-house’ databases. Marcon always does best when there is change in the markets – up or down. We expect both a lot of change and sales in the maritime industries we specialize in during the coming years.”

Marcon International, Inc. has specialized for the past 30 years in sales, purchases, charters and appraisals of vessels and barges in the towing, marine construction and offshore petroleum industries. Fourteen sales and charters have been concluded to-date in 2011. Sales and/or newbuilding deliveries of six more vessels and barges are pending and expected to be completed within the next 30 days. Since the first sale in 1983, Marcon has sold/chartered over 1,229 vessels and barges worldwide including over 779,400BHP in tugs, 776,500dwt ocean deck barges, 153,065dwt ocean hopper barges, 6.317 million bbl capacity in ocean tank barges, 82 crew & pilot boats, 160 supply, utility & tug supply and 55 survey, seismic & support vessels, in addition to others.
