Time to hand over the baton after successful years in Scandinavia’s largest RoRo port

In 2017, Jörgen Nilsson started the position as CEO of Port of Trelleborg with the assignment of moving and expanding the port with a completion date of January 1, 2026 at the latest. The port itself is now practically completed.

After a period of mature consideration, I have come to the conclusion that it is now time for a new chapter in my working life, what it will be I do not know at the moment. After seven years as CEO, it is time to hand over the baton to another leader who can continue to develop this prosperous company with a future ahead of it. I have had fantastic years at Port of Trelleborg and I would like to thank all my talented employees and everyone else I have had the privilege of working with. But for me, it is the same work and enthusiasm as always until the last day of work and everything in accordance with the plan we have in front of us”, says Jörgen Nilsson.

Performed his assignment excellently

Jan Isaksson, chairman of the board of Port of Trelleborg, expresses his appreciation:

The board would like to thank Jörgen for fantastic years as CEO where he has developed the company with very good results. I think above all of the tough years during the pandemic where Jörgen piloted the company through difficult times in an impressive way. Jörgen has successfully performed the assignment of completing the reconstruction of the port with its new ferry berths. Jörgen has a great commitment and is a highly valued leader, while at the same time he has built great customer relationships over the years. We thank him for all his efforts and wish him the best of luck with future challenges.”

Recruitment of a new CEO will begin as soon as possible.
