Scandlines ferry company presents new Management Board

Scandlines, the ferry shipping company, has appointed a new CEO to replace Carsten Nørland and a new Chief Financial Officer.

Eric Gregoire succeeds Carsten Nørland as CEO, who replaced the long-standing head of shipping, Søren Poulsgaard Jensen, in September 2021.

Together, Gregoire, Koch Jensen and Guldmann Petersen, who will continue as COO, will form Scandlines’ Management Board. Gregoire will take up his position in July 2024. He comes from a position as CEO of Goodpack in Singapore.

“Scandlines is well positioned for the future as an innovative and competitive provider of maritime transport between Germany and Denmark. Eric Gregoire brings the necessary commercial and international experience to further optimise Scandlines’ business processes – and not least to ensure an excellent customer experience,” says Vagn Sørensen, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the shipping company.

Koch Jensen has more than 25 years of experience in financial management and brings a wealth of knowledge from various Danish and international retail companies, such as the Danish bakery and confectionery chain Lagkagehuset, Coop and Colgate-Palmolive. At Scandlines, he will be responsible for all of the Group’s finance, treasury, IT and procurement functions. He replaces Jesper Mikkelsen Heilbuth in this position.

In January, the RoPax shipping company appointed Peter Leschly as its new Head of Freight, and there was also a recent change in the position of Managing Director for Germany.
