“I would like to give a warm welcome to Craig, whose experience and dedication will be extremely beneficial for leading Neptune Lines,” said chairwoman of the Board of Directors, Melina Travlos. “I will work closely with him to make sure that our vision will become reality. We will raise the bar higher, we will overcome challenges, and we will accomplish amazing things together.”
Jasienski started his career with Wilhelmsen Lines in Australia in 1987 and held various management positions in Wilhelmsen Lines and Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics in Norway and the UK until he started in UECC in 2005 as director of commercial management.
“Neptune Lines has long been a company I admire, and it is with great honour that I have been asked to join the company as CEO,” said Jasienski. “I am very excited to lead the organisation in achieving our ambitions, and I look forward to working with the strong and talented team in Neptune Lines.”
