Later, he moved on to commercial roles with Jardine Matheson, DNV and Lloyd’s Register in Singapore and Dubai where he worked in regional business development function. 

Throughout his career, Tarun has been involved in the adoption of novel maritime technologies including Floating Storage and Regasification Units (FSRUs), Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) bunkering, additive manufacturing, Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNGs) by scaling advisory and assurance services to meet the evolving needs. His commercial mindset and a keen drive for collaboration has led him to take several solutions to market.
