Essent Trading - Scaling barriers

Paymon Aliabadi, CEO of Essent Trading since 2004, has overseen the company's rise from being the trading arm of a Dutch utility to its position today as a pan-international commodity trader and originator. Founded in 1999 to manage Essent's diverse portfolio of assets and long-term contracts, Essent Trading has grown from a staff of 50 focused on dispatch and power in the Benelux region to a 300-strong team, and from initially providing about 10% of the group's revenues to about 35% today.
