A promotion for Mattias Hellstrom
Svitzer, a global towage provider and part of A.P. Moller-Maersk, has appointed Mattias Hellstrom as its new global chief commercial officer (CCO), effective from 1 October.
Hellstrom makes the move to Svitzer’s global business after three years as CCO of Svitzer Europe, and replaces outgoing global CCO Videlina Georgieva, who was recently appointed managing director of Svitzer Australia.
The company has already initiated the process of recruiting a replacement for Hellstrom in the role of Svitzer Europe CCO. Prior to this, Hellstrom was managing director of Svitzer Scandinavia for nearly seven years. He has also held management roles at Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) and A.P. Moller – Maersk. All in all, he has more than 25 years of experience in the shipping industry. (cj)
