After seven years at the helm of Odfjell SE, Kristian Mørch has informed the board of directors that he will step down as CEO. He will continue in his current role until his successor is in place. The board has initiated a process to identify the next CEO of the company.

The chair of the board, Laurence Odfjell, commented: “Kristian has led Odfjell through seven intense years of transformation. Under his leadership, Odfjell has made significant progress and as a company, we are in a much better place today than we were in 2015. The board would like to express our gratitude for his contributions over these years, and we value his commitment to ensuring an orderly process to find his successor.”

Kristian Mørch commented: “It has been a privilege to lead the highly professional and dedicated Odfjell team during the past seven years, and I am proud of what we have achieved during this turnaround period. Odfjell is today standing on a very strong competitive platform and is well-positioned to take advantage of the opportunities ahead of us, so it is now the right time for the company to identify who will be leading Odfjell into the future.”

The board of directors has engaged Russell Reynolds Associates in Oslo as an advisor in the process.
