On 28th January 2016 – 35 years after setting up the company in a basement flat in London, David Durnford-Slater has retired from his role as Managing Director and Owner of DSB Offshore Ltd, and handed over to his son, Roland.

Tutored by his dynamic father, the ‘King of the Jackups’, and nurtured in the dark art of shipbroking over 15 years, Roland has now taken over the mantle as Managing Director. Roland and his team hope to build on the foundation that David has laid – a company with a reputation of integrity in the industry and a network of long standing relationships with clients and other brokers.

There have been a few more changes recently in the DSB Office, but it’s business as usual with more and more interesting inquiries coming in. To read about the rest of the DSB team, visit our Meet the Team page.
