Tell us about your background and your role
Living on the coast of Denmark, sailing has always been a part of my life. It is something I shared with my father, who had trained as a blacksmith before applying his knowledge and craft to shipbuilding. Inspired by this, I went on to study Nautical Science and Vessel Administration at Svendborg International Maritime Academy.
I then sailed for two years as a Cadet and Officer for Maersk, before becoming a Skipper of a commercial sailing ship, and then Navigation Officer on board a jack-up vessel for a Danish company. Fortunately, a great opportunity come my way with Fred. Olsen Windcarrier, and I joined as Operations Manager in 2021.
In my current role, I bring many different threads together to ensure our wind projects stay on track, on budget, and on time. This can be complex! You need to be proactive, detail-oriented, and have a head for data. As I work with multiple teams across our organization, our supplier network, and ports, effective communication skills are an absolute must.
