Dampskibsselskabet NORDEN A/S has hired Christian Vinther Christensen as new head of the Dry Cargo Department. Christian Vinther Christensen is 46 years old and brings with him 16 years of experience from the dry cargo operator Western Bulk. He is shipping educated at Maersk, where he, prior to his employment at Western Bulk, for 10 years held a number of positions in the group including management positions in Maersk Broker.
As head of NORDEN’s Dry Cargo Department, Christian Vinther Christensen will be heading the significant strengthening of the operator activities in the dry cargo business, which the Company announced in connection with the interim report for the third quarter of 2016.
The operating activities cover global transportation at sea, where earnings are made up of the difference between what the customer pays for the transport and what it costs NORDEN to charter a vessel for a shorter period of time or just a single trip. With good access to both cargo and tonnage in the global market owing to its global network of offices, NORDEN is well positioned to increase its operator activities significantly.
”Christian Vinther Christensen brings with him extensive experience within the dry cargo business including operator activities, which NORDEN is to strengthen significantly in line with the strategy Focus & Simplicity. Besides his strong professional skills, he is also a leader with a strong interest in individuals and teamwork. I am sure Christian will fit right into the NORDEN organisation with its many skilled employees, and I look forward to working with him on making NORDEN even stronger,” CEO Jan Rindbo says.
Christian Vinther Christensen in comment:
”I am proud to become part of NORDEN. Over the years, the Company has built an ever stronger brand, and I look forward to using my skills and contribute to making NORDEN a natural first choice for cargo customers, owners and brokers as well as first choice for high performing individuals.”
Christian Vinther Christensen takes up his new position 1 January 2017 and becomes part of Senior Management reporting to CEO Jan Rindbo.
