Bunker Holding welcomes new board member

19 Mar 2018

International bunkering group Bunker Holding (BH) has welcomed Christoffer Berg Lassen as Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) of its executive board, according to Danish publication ShippingWatch.

Bunker Holding Group CEO Keld R. Demant confirmed the development, while explaining various roles of the three-man BH board consisting of Lassen, Jesper Klokker Hansen as Chief Financial Officer, and himself.

“We see a huge and very interesting potential for acquisitions, and we need to free some resources to look into this. That's largely what I will be doing going forward,” says Demant.

“Consolidation in the sector will become one of my main tasks, namely to take part in assessing and negotiating which direction to go and how fast to do it.”

Lassen, meanwhile, will be responsible for the overall operations of Bunker Holding's existing companies.

“All bunker companies answer to a brand manager, who then answers to Christoffer Berg Lassen, who will coordinate and ensure that our strategy is realised,” notes Demant.

“We looked internally as well as externally, but we haven't found anyone who like Christoffer Berg Lassen has such a knowledge about the market, a track record of governing through others and who also understands the culture we represent.”

The promotion of Lassen also indicates that Dan-Bunkering is currently looking for a new CEO within the next 12-month period.

“Christoffer Berg Lassen has already made his mark on Dan-Bunkering, so that some of the company's physical activities have been moved to our new concept, Bunker One,” says Demant.

“So it will also be a more streamlined company to take over and manage going forward.

“But there are already some of the tasks he had there which have been delegated out to others on the Dan-Bunkering executive team.”
