Larsen will continue as chairman and CEO of OSM’s maritime services holding company Optimum Maritime Holding, and will also remain chairman of OSM Aviation.
Stepping into the role of chairman is current deputy CEO Tommy Olofsen. Olofsen will keep his current responsibilities, which include strategic development and business relations. Additionally, Singapore-based Bjoern Sprotte has been appointed CEO, and will be in charge of the day-to-day operations of the group.
