Marcel joined S&P Global Platts in 2015. He started off working on the pricing desks for gas and power as well as freight before spending two years on the London crude oil desk covering the Russian and West African markets. Since joining the metals team in a more strategic role at the end of 2017, Marcel has played a prominent role in shaping Platts battery metals coverage. Since then, the team has launched four new lithium assessments, produces a monthly battery metals podcast and has developed the very first — and as yet only — mobile app dedicated to battery metals news and pricing. Marcel gained an MSc in Energy, Trade and Finance from the Cass Business School in London after completing his undergraduate degree at the University of Leicester in Management Studies & Economics.
