Vagn Sørensen named new chairman for Scandlines
Scandlines, the German-Danish ferry operator in the Baltic, has appointed Vagn Sørensen as chairman of the supervisory board. Sørensen has more than 30 years of executive experience in international business, in the aviation industry in particular.
He joined Scandinavian Airlines in 1984 and became executive vice president in 1994. Then he was appointed CEO of Austrian Airlines in 2001 and resigned from this position in 2006 in order to pursue a successful career as chairman and member of supervisory boards of various companies.
“I’m delighted to join Scandlines as chairman of the supervisory board. I’m excited by the shipping line’s green agenda, its growth potential and its strong customer focus. I’m looking forward to working with Søren Poulsgaard Jensen and the management team to continue Scandlines’ development,” Sørensen said. He replaces Steve Ridgway, who joined Scandlines as chairman of the supervisory board in 2014. (mw)
