Based in Singapore Mr Larsen will be responsible for the strategic development of Wrist’s bigger global key clients in Asia, as well as globally. He will also be focusing on the newbuilding concept and activities for Wrist Ship Supply in Asia, which includes initial supplies in the entire Asian region, including China, Korea and Japan.
Mr Larsen, 46, took up his new post on July 20, following a previous role as Chief Executive Officer for Wrist Far East. The hiring is another step in the company’s increased focus on global key clients.
The new Director has a long history with the organisation and he brings with him a wealth of experience and existing customer relationships, as well as an ambition to significantly increase Wrist’s participation in newbuilding orders at Asian shipyards.
He said: “As Director of Global Clients, I will have great opportunities to benefit from the experiences I acquired during several years in Asia. At the same time, this new position offers several new and exciting challenges as I can focus on increasing sales in both the growing Asian market and globally.”
Executive Vice President Soren Jorgensen said: “Having Troels on board reflects Wrist’s strong ambitions for increased focus on Key Clients – both in newbuilding orders and in the overall growth we experience in Asia. Troels is known for his great sales skills and I am confident that he in his new position can contribute to strengthen Wrist’s growth.”
