DANIEL Nordberg has been named GAC’s group vice-president for the Asia Pacific and Indian Subcontinent region, following the retirement of Lars Bergstrom who has been with the group for more than 26 years.

Nordberg joined GAC in 2001 as financial controller based at the company’s headquarters.

In the two decades since then, he served in a variety of roles which gain him valuable experience in the organisation’s three core business areas: shipping, logistics and marine services, most recently as general manager of GAC Qatar since 2016.

During his time in Qatar, the company experienced robust growth, with new yards and warehouses, and the opening of its Ras Laffan office to further support the country’s offshore sector.

GAC Group President Bengt Ekstrand said, “Our strategy of management rotation broadens competence and outlook to ensure the best leadership and service to our customers worldwide. Daniel brings fresh energy and a wealth of experience from three regions of the GAC world to his new role.

“At a time when we are all looking with cautious optimism towards a post-pandemic world, his expertise and experience will provide the driving force for new success in the Asia Pacific and Indian Subcontinent.”
