Bjørn Tønsberg, vice president Asia Pacific, Wilhelmsen Ships Service Singapore comments: "Sean will lead and drive the sales strategies in the region with close cooperation of the Area Sales Teams. He will also actively participate in and communicate the offers of all our market segments, initiatives and activities. He brings with him vast experience in sales and strategic account management.
