Group Management changes further sharpen GAC's business focus
Group Management changes further sharpen GAC's business focus

Dubai, 5 May 2015 – Global shipping, logistics and marine services company, GAC, is further strengthening its strategic focus on the worldwide energy sector with the appointment of William Hill as its Executive Group Vice President – Oil & Gas.

Group President Bengt Ekstrand says bringing a specific senior management focus on Oil & Gas is a clear signal of GAC’s intent. 'Our aim is to be more strategic, more active and more successful in this sector.”
 
“Over the decades, GAC has built up a broad suite of assets and skills in Oil & Gas,” he adds. “With Hill's appointment, we will expand our footprint and impact as a global provider to this dynamic and demanding industry.”

Hill joined the GAC Group in 1984 and held marketing and business development roles in Kuwait and Dubai before serving as Regional Manager for Asia Pacific from 1995 to 2001. Before his appointment as Executive Group Vice President – Commercial in 2009, he was Group Vice President for Logistics Services. 
 
His former duties as Group Vice President – Commercial are being taken over by Christer Sjödoff, previously Group Vice President – Solutions. Sjödoff’s appointment brings his accountability for Group IT and the eco-friendly underwater hull cleaning system HullWiper under Commercial.
 
Sjödoff has more than 25 years of experience in shipping, logistics and marine and has been with the GAC Group since 1993. After holding management and operations posts in the Middle East and Asia, he served as Regional Director for Asia Pacific and the Indian Subcontinent for five years from 2002. In 2007, he was appointed Group Vice President – Solutions, to develop strategic partnerships to meet the needs of the international maritime community.

Ekstrand says: “The position of Group Vice President – Commercial is a good fit with Sjödoff’s energy and entrepreneurial flair. With him at the helm, we shall bring together under a single umbrella all the essential tools we need to develop our business products and services to serve the changing needs of our customers.” 
 
Both appointments are effective from 1 May 2015.
