Finnlines names Antson as president, CEO
Helsinki-based roll-on/roll-off operator Finnlines has named Christer Antson as its permanent president and chief executive officer, effective July 4.
Antson, the company’s executive vice president and chief controller, will take over from Olav Rakkenes, former president and CEO of Atlantic Container Line, who has been covering the role since April while the Finnish carrier searched for a replacement to Antti Lagerroos who resigned in February.
Meanwhile, Seija Turunen has been appointed as executive vice president, chief financial officer and deputy CEO. She is Finnlines’ executive vice president in charge of finance and communications.
Italy’s Grimaldi Group is the majority owner of Finnlines.
