Chris Aversano, President of the Connecticut Maritime Association, upon making the announcement stated, “On behalf of the CMA Board, we are very pleased to be presenting Gary Vogel, CEO and Director of Eagle Bulk, with the 2022 Commodore Award. Since graduating from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, Gary has spent over 30 years in drybulk, developing a stellar reputation for his ability to successfully lead organizations, turnaround businesses, and navigate the volatile shipping markets.

As a Connecticut local, Gary has been a strong advocate for the CMA and its important mission to build and sustain a vibrant shipping community for our region at large.” he shared.

Mr. Vogel said, “Having started my career in Connecticut, the CMA has been a constant, and has always been a source of fellowship and information exchange with professionals across the industry. As a former employee of both Torben Jensen and Ole Skaarup, I am extremely honored and humbled to be chosen as this year’s honoree and join them, as well as many other former recipients, who I hold in the highest regard.

Ultimately, I believe this honor is the result of the collective efforts by the team at Eagle Bulk, who over the past six years has worked tirelessly with the common goal of creating one of the leading integrated drybulk shipowner-operators.” he added.
