Ports of Stockholm announces marketing reinforcements
Ports of Stockholm is experiencing an expansive growth phase and is recruiting new Sales and Marketing personnel. In 2018 two new members will join the team, and a further position is also available, the company said in its press release.
During the first half of 2018 two new members will augment the Ports of Stockholm Sales and Marketing force. Johan Wallén, former CEO of the container shipping company Team Lines, will become Director of Sales and Marketing and Stefan Scheja, previously Master Mariner at Tallink Silja, has already taken up his position as Ferries and Cruises Manager.
Johan Wallén will be responsible for all business areas at Ports of Stockholm – containers, RoRo, ferries, cruises and bulk. He has extensive and thorough experience of the container sector and will focus particularly on sales and marketing efforts regarding the Stockholm Norvik Port. Ports of Stockholm is building Sweden’s newest freight port, south of Stockholm, which will open in 2020.
Stefan Scheja will be responsible for the sailings that annually carry 12 million passengers to and from Stockholm within the ferries and cruises segment. Ports of Stockholm is Sweden’s biggest passenger port and one of the largest in Europe. These passengers generate a turnover of more than SEK 5 billion for the region’s tourist industry every year. Stefan has previously worked as Master Mariner at Tallink Silja and has extensive knowledge of how this sector works, which is extremely important in meeting the very varying needs of different customers.
