Global oil and shipping group Monjasa Ltd on Thursday (1 October) said Lotte Grønborg Lundberg has joined the Monjasa Holding Board of Directors to take part in further sustaining Monjasa’s position as a global top marine fuels supplier.
Lotte comes with over 40 years of international maritime leadership and brings new competencies into play in the boardroom, it said.
With extensive experience from the A.P. Moller-Maersk Group and related entities, Lotte has served in various commercial and corporate roles as leader and executive in primarily Maersk Line, Maersk Procurement and Maersk Broker.
Today, she is active as Director of the Danish Maritime Fund and various board positions, added Monjasa.
“We are delighted to welcome a true maritime professional like Lotte into the Monjasa Holding boardroom,” said Christian Merrild, Chairman of the board.
“She brings new and interesting competencies covering many aspects of the ongoing shipping industry transformation, including ship management and newbuild programmes. We need the best people on board to navigate tomorrow’s challenges in oil and shipping.”
“I have known Lotte for around 15 years and followed her exciting maritime career with the A.P. Moller-Maersk Group and at port authorities and maritime organisations,” added Anders Østergaard, Group CEO and Board Member.
“Lotte is driven, curious, outspoken, and has a grounded personality, which altogether makes her and Monjasa a good match. Monjasa is fast approaching 20 years in oil and shipping and Lotte’s entrance in the Board of Directors compliments the overall maturity of the Monjasa Group.”
Monjasa shared that Lotte joined A.P. Moller-Maersk in 1978 as a Management Trainee before building a career across internal management positions until 2017.
Since 2019 she has served as Director of the Danish Maritime Fund, with the objective of providing grants, finance and loans to projects supporting Danish Shipping and Maritime Industry.
Educational background includes a bachelor in International Business from Copenhagen Business School (CBS) and various leadership programmes at IMD, Colombia University and CBS.
At the same time, Tage Bundgaard, who will also be celebrating his 75th birthday later this month, steps down as Member of the Board following eight years at Monjasa.
Positivity, experience and loyalty have been keywords describing Tage Bundgaard, while serving Monjasa with invaluable knowledge from a life dedicated to shipping.
