New head for Blue Water Shipping
October 1 - Blue Water Shipping's founder and managing director, Kurt Skov, is stepping down and will entrust the chief executive position to Kim Hedegaard Sørensen (pictured below, left).
Blue Water Shipping has just celebrated its 40th anniversary and Skov says: "Much has happened in Blue Water's 40 year history, and there have been ups and downs. When founding Blue Water, it was my ambition to create a good, local shipping and freight forwarding company offering consultancy and service to the local clients. The aim was to be the best in town. Our strategy has not changed, but today we are "Best in Town" globally - still with the client in focus.
"Time flies, and now it is time for me to step down from my position as managing director and leave the responsibility for the company to someone else. As my successor, I have chosen Kim Hedegaard Sorensen, who is a very competent and experienced man with the right values for leading the sustained development of Blue Water Shipping."
Sørensen has a long career in the shipping and transport business. His most recent position was as ceo for TransAtlantic Industrial Shipping, a post he took up earlier this year. Kim Hedegaard Sørensen was previously employed in the A.P. Moller/Maersk Group for 17 years, occupying a number of leading positions, which included Damco Europe, Maersk Filipinas and a job as strategy manager in Maersk Line.
He takes up his position with Blue Water during the autumn, and 65 year old Kurt Skov will subsequently concentrate on his role as executive chairman in the company.
"It has been an exciting time with both crises and successes - and hard work including 100 to 140 days of travelling every year, as it is necessary to go out and see for oneself, consider and evaluate. I still expect to be working actively for many years, but I will now concentrate on business development, clients and networking, which I find incredibly interesting", says Skov.
