Previous company manager of GAC Hong Kong, Thomas Okbo, will take over as group vice president for Africa. Russia, which previously fell under the Africa, Russia and Central Asia region, will now form part of GAC's Europe region.

Okbo is replaced as GAC Hong Kong's company manager by former finance manager Maria Lam.

Lars Bergström, formerly group vice president of the Middle East region, takes over as group vice president for the Asia Pacific and Indian subcontinent region, including Pakistan.

Bergström is replaced as group vice president - Middle East by Fredrik Nyström, who previously served as group vice president of the Asia Pacific region.

Mikko Wieru, who previously headed GAC Qatar, will assume the role of company manager for GAC Marine Abu Dhabi. Accordingly, Daniel Nordberg will step down from the helm of GAC Oman to take on the role of GAC Qatar company manager.

This leaves Johan Fulke to take the reigns at GAC Oman, after serving as company manager of GAC Marine Abu Dhabi.

Meanwhile, Joel Domingo has been appointed company manager for GAC Philippines. He replaces Jake Cuerva who served as managing director for many years, and remains on the GAC Philippines board.

Lukas Jönsson, former business development manager with GAC Sweden, has taken over from Mats Boberg as company manager. Boberg remains with the company until his retirement at the end of 2016.
