Liner shipping analyst Sea-Intelligence Consulting has strengthened its advisory services team with some household name appointments to its management board.
It announced today that Electrolux former head of logistics Bjorn Vang Jensen (pictured above), Nestlé former head of logistics procurement and global freight Jochen Gutschmidt and ex-P&O Nedlloyd and Maersk container shipping veteran David Macleod had all been named vice presidents of advisory services – global supply chain.
In addition, Michael Helweg has been appointed head of commercial and he will also join Sea-Intelligence executives Andy Lane and Alan Murphy in advisory services – ports, terminals and shipping lines.
“Today is the biggest day for Sea-Intelligence since our founding almost 10 years ago, and I am incredibly excited about the new opportunities we will be able to offer customers globally,” said Alan Murphy, founder and chief executive.
“We have spent the past 10 years building and strengthening our ability to provide exceptional and trusted liner shipping research and analysis, and we continually broaden the range of our data services, but we have previously not had the in-house experience from the cargo owner side of the equation.
“With these four industry powerhouses joining Sea-Intelligence, combined with our existing quantitative and analytical skills, vast experience from the shipping line side, and unrivalled shipping line operational data, we have a truly industry-leading ability to provide guidance, support, and advice to the cargo owner community,” he added.
