He will be responsible for overseeing the management of the vessel operations in the US Gulf and the Caribbean Islands, Central and North Coast of South America liner service.

Mr. Alber brings to Dan-Gulf over 30 years of maritime shipping experience.

His most recent positions were at Intermarine where he was line manager for its Far East, European and South American services.   

Mr. Alber commented “I am very excited about joining the Dan-Gulf team and look forward to providing our clients the same unsurpassed level of service they are used to. It is a challenging time to be certain, but we want to assure our clients we are there to serve them in all their shipping needs.”  “Eric’s wealth of experience and knowledge of the various segments of the shipping industry will be a valuable asset to our company” added Niels Busse, President of Dan-Gulf Shipping.

Mr. Alber will be transitioning to assume the duties of long tenured Vice President Lowell Stewart when he moves on to medical leave shortly and retirement. Mr. Busse added “All of us at Dan-Gulf Shipping want to thank Lowell from the bottom of our hearts for his 24 years of dedicated service to our company and our valued customers.  He has made great contributions to the success of our company over the years and he will be greatly missed.  We all wish Lowell the very best in this next phase of his life.”
