Prior to joining Aegis, Anna was manager of Upstream Business Intelligence at Marathon Oil Company, where her team advised on policy and commercial initiatives impacting Marathon‘s business operations and business development. She was previously manager of External Affairs in Marathon’s London Office representing the interests of the company's international operations in Africa, Asia and Europe.
“Effective logistics is the key to further unlocking Africa’s economic potential and FSG is moving fast to be the preferred multi-modal provider for the continent. It’s a great place to be at an exciting time,” Ms. Hensel stated.
Anna graduated from the School of International Service at American University. She was awarded the Konrad Adenauer Foundation Fellowship for graduate studies at the Geschwister Scholl Institut, Ludwig Maximilians University.
Tom Shortley joins the FSG team as Vice President of Logistics. He is responsible for the development, implementation, and build-out of FSG’s pan-Africa service network.
Mr. Shortley brings 25 years of international public- and private-sector logistics and supply chain experience, with a background managing global, cross-functional programs for several leading freight forwarders. Prior to his transition to the commercial sector, Tom served for 13 years with the United Nations, where he managed disaster response and stabilization programs, primarily in Africa.
