Organizer & Moderator:
IRENE NOTIAS, MANAGING DIRECTOR/SR. BUNKER BROKER – PRIME’S BUNKERSPLUS SERVICES: Long time bunker broker, Irene Notias’ mission is to help her clients sustain their businesses.  In this webinar, she decided to gather colleagues who are in the position to share facts about the new compliant fuel and credit — what makes it go round; with two comical scenes from Abbott & Costello’s that contrast this presentation (“Who’s on first” & “ 7 x 13”), educating and providing accurate information to clients, makes for better decision making & better results.  A little comic twist always helps bring more understanding.  It’s “prime time” that we enforce a trust between suppliers and buyers.
