Trafigura Group Pte Ltd. has announced an evolution of its executive team to further strengthen leadership and focus across its global activities during a period of exceptional success and growth. The changes also reflect the forthcoming retirement of Mike Wainwright.

Trafigura is a leading commodities group, owned by its employees and founded 30 years ago.
