Wallem Group has appointed John-Kaare Aune as its new managing director of ship management.
Aune is expected to take up his position on July 1, and he replaces David Price who left the company in February and is now in charge of Gulf Oil Marine.
Frank Coles, CEO of Wallem Group, said changes at the company were aimed at aligning and strengthening Wallem Group’s organisational structure to ensure the company meets evolving customer needs.
Aune joins Wallem from the Cayman Registry, where he was most recently regional director of safety and compliance, overseeing its global commercial services and business development in addition to the registration section in the Asia-Pacific region.
“We are excited and lucky to have been able to secure John’s services. The expertise and knowledge he brings to the company will greatly enhance our mission of safety and quality with technology. He brings a wide range of technical, compliance, regulatory and operational experience. John has earned the respect and endorsement of maritime industry players with his constant focus on the needs of customers,” said Coles.
