Skuld today announces the appointment of Simone Ingeberg as the new head of Skuld Oslo 1, the larger of its two Oslo business units and the centre of excellence for its charterers business. Ingeberg takes up her role with immediate effect.
Ingeberg was most recently vice-president, head of FDD, and her promotion follows 10 years at Skuld. Prior to this, she was a lawyer at Wikborg Rein. Ingeberg's mandate as head of the business unit will be to oversee operations in Oslo 1, which services clients based in Belgium, Canada, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, the UK, the US, and Central & South America.
Within Ingeberg's Oslo 1 team, Øystein Djuv-Stiansen remains vice-president, head of claims. Djuv-Stiansen has been with Skuld since 2012 and was promoted to head of claims in August 2013. Before Skuld he was with Wikborg Rein and at the tanker owners Odfjell.
The Oslo 1 team will be supported by the newly-promoted Peter Hazell. He takes up his new role as assistant vice-president, head of defence, in Oslo 1, also with immediate effect. Coming from the international maritime law firm Ince & Co, Hazell has been with Skuld for two years and will focus on maintaining Skuld's high service level at Oslo 1.
Ståle Hansen, Skuld president and CEO, said: "This is a very exciting time for Skuld Oslo 1. We have promoted talented members of our existing team, as we continue to strengthen its reputation as well as centre of excellence for our charterers business.
"From her joining Skuld, Simone has established herself as an outstanding lawyer, with a clear strategic mind, as well as being a strong leader. Her reputation and strong relationships in the market leave her well-placed to lead Oslo 1, and ensure continuity while maintaining the outstanding service for which Skuld is known. I am delighted to welcome Simone in her new role."
Ingeberg said: "It has been a pleasure contributing to the success of Skuld Oslo 1 thus far. We have an incredible team in place and I am very much looking forward to taking a leading role as we continue to grow."
