Damen Shiprepair Götaverken has appointed Ms Monica Svenner as its new managing director, making her the first woman to take an MD position within the ship repair industry.

Ms Svenner has previous experience as MD for a number of international companies such as Stena Recycling and Atlas Copco. In her new position, she aims to help drive the company forward.

Ms Svenner commented: “Profitability is A to Z, but developing a company also requires modern leadership, development of the employee’s competence and an efficient organization to provide all the services that the market requires. This will give increased efficiency and, in the long term, a stronger trademark.”

Mr Jos Goris, the current MD, said: “Monica has extensive experience in leadership and business development within a variety of organizations and industries, particularly within heavy industry. This means that she can bring new approaches and innovation, which is extremely positive for Damen Shiprepair Götaverken. It is also particularly good having an MD from Gothenburg who is internationally respected for her experience, the perfect mix.”
