New Sales manager ready for future challenges

After nearly 20 years in the company, with strong focus on business, clients and sales, Tomas Gustavsson now retires, at an early age, this autumn. Port of Norrköping expresses its great thanks for these years, as Tomas now hands over to Magnus Grimhed, whom has been in the company for the past year, and as of September 1, takes over the role of Sales manager.

Magnus Grimhed has extensive experience from the shipping industry. Over the last ten years, he has been active in the Maersk Group on various positions in commercial roles, including General Manager of Seago Line Scandinavia. Since May 2017, Magnus has been working on sales and business development at Port of Norrköping, now taking over as sales manager.

- It has been very productive to work in parallel with Tomas and I would like to thank him a lot. He has a long and very solid experience from the port and shipping industry and has meant a lot for the development of the port, says Magnus.

- During the past year I have gained good insight into our own and our customers’ activities. At the same time, I have been able to expand my network from previous jobs with many new contacts, says Magnus. I’m really looking forward to further developing the contacts and working close to customers to see how we can create more value.

Port of Norrköping is now facing a time of major development. Growth has been good in several business areas, and recently clear signs of the major expansion of the Pampus terminal was given. The completion of the expanded Pampus terminal is estimated in 2023 and will mean a significant increase in capacity to meet future demands for increased freight volumes, larger vessels and more efficient production.

- We are facing an exciting development. There are certainly real challenges ahead, Magnus concludes.
