UAL, MyCrane and Blue Water Shipping Announce Latest Hires
A new year, a new start! Breakbulk Magazine brings you the latest hires in Europe and the Americas:
Universal Africa Lines
Tania Galli has started a new role as director of breakbulk shipping company Universal Africa Lines. Prior to her promotion, Galli, a trained lawyer, served as UAL’s head of legal for more than 10 years. UAL said the appointment showed its commitment to recognizing and fostering talent within the organization. “Her longstanding expertise in our very niche business in West Africa makes her the right candidate to strengthen our management team, and it will allow our group to further expand its services while maintaining our high standards. We are very happy to have her on our board, as we look positively to the future in these exciting times,” said CEO Roger Jungblut. UAL is a dedicated liner service with direct sailings from NWE, MED and USGOM to West Africa.
Online crane rental service MyCrane has picked Jason Brough as the new president of MyCrane USA. The Dubai-based tech platform said Brough, a former business development director at Mammoet, will use his extensive industry expertise in revenue generation, project management, and sales and marketing to drive take-up of the company’s services in the U.S. “I look forward to using my knowledge and contacts to encourage potential MyCrane clients to look afresh at the way they rent lifting equipment,” Brough said. “MyCrane lets its users take advantage of the benefits of digitalization. This saves everyone in the crane rental industry a considerable amount of time in finding the right crane for their next project, as well as comparing quotes in a uniformed way.”
Blue Water Shipping
Jørgen Wisborg has been named chairman of transport and logistics specialist Blue Water Shipping, taking over from the group’s founder Kurt Skov, who will stay on as a member of the board of directors. Wisborg, who joined Blue Water’s board of directors earlier this year, was CEO of Danish energy firm OK from 2005-2022, and has served as chairman or director for several other companies including Denmark-based industrial conglomerate Schouw & Co. “I have received a very warm and positive welcome, and I have been confirmed that the culture, values, and ambitions of everyone in Blue Water are very strong. As chairman, I will have great respect for maintaining and developing our culture and dedication in order to continue the profitable growth based on our strong customer focus,” Wisborg said.
