Kari-Pekka Laaksonen.

Based in Samskip’s offices in Rotterdam, Laaksonen will lead the management board of six executives, including Ásbjörn Gislason who will become group deputy ceo. Laaksonen will be tasked with executing the company’s growth plans, which are based on a customer-focused approach.
