On April 1, 2018 Hans Buch A/S welcomed Palle Wredstrøm as Division Manager for the Marine division, where he will be in charge of developing sales and associated services as well as product and customer portfolio within the marine, meteorology and railway segments.
And Palle Wredstrøm is certainly well equipped for the job. As trained Machine Engineer he has sailed with A.P. Møller, J. Lauritzen and as lieutenant in the Navy. In addition to these merits he holds a diploma in Business Management from CBS – Copenhagen Business School and a Leadership and Sales & Marketing program from Ashridge Business School in England.
Throughout the years, Palle has held various positions in Denmark as well as internationally within the marine industry with renowned companies such as Alfa Laval Marine & Diesel, Hamworhty, and Maersk Maritime Technology, and most recently as Head of New Building and Upgrade Business with ABB Turbo Scandinavia.
Palle is an experienced and strong leader with many years of experience from the maritime industry, who throughout his career has demonstrated that he can make the right decisions with the aim to secure growth and earnings.
Henriette Olsen, CEO of Hans Buch A/S has high expectations to the new cooperation:
