Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) advises that it has strengthened its Singapore-based management team with the appointment of Ms. Hege Solstad as Regional Director, WSS Asia Pacific, and Harald Lundestad as General Manager in the Singapore office.

WSS say that these appointments reflect increased levels of business and a focus on expanding service provision across the Asia-Pacific region.

Solstad joined Wilhelmsen in 2005, as Business Director Maritime Logistics, where her main focus was the development of new products and service offers and subsequently as Area Director Black Sea with a focus on emerging markets.

She brings solid experience in both commercial and operational aspects of liner shipping and logistics, gained during roles at Atlantic Container Line, Ivarans Rederi and Seaway Shipping. Solstad has a Bachelor in Supply Chain Management and a Bachelor in Business Administration from the Norwegian School of Management, BI Oslo.

As General Manager, Singapore, Harald Lundestad will be responsible for operations that each year include 8,000 ships agency port calls, the delivery of 31,000 product orders and 3,000 safety service jobs.
