Gulftainer pinches Flemming Dalgaard from DP World
Gulftainer has appointed DP World’s Flemming Dalgaard, as CEO of GT International, a division of the Gulftainer Group responsible for international operations.
Dalgaard will report directly to Gulftainer’s managing director, Peter Richards, and will be responsible for driving the international operations of the company, which has significant presence in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Lebanon, Turkey and Brazil.
Gulftainer also recently marked its US entry with a 35-year concession agreement with Canaveral Port Authority to operate the port’s first container and multi-cargo terminal.
“Gulftainer has set ambitious goals to strengthen our international operations by exploring opportunities and other growth drivers,” said Richards. “Mr. Dalgaard brings a wealth of experience that will add significant value to our expansion plans and ongoing operations.”
“Gulftainer has already established its credentials globally through its vast network, efficient infrastructure and extensive partnerships,” adds Dalgaard. “There is tremendous potential for the organisation to grow its footprint and build value that will benefit the industry as well as local economies.”
Dalgaard worked for more than seven years at DP World Group, first as senior vice president/managing director, Europe & Russia region; and then as senior vice president of strategy, before joining Gulftainer.
He has also worked at Maersk Group, where he built up his career for more than 22 years, growing from Shipping through to managing all Maersk Line’s activities in several regions, with his last position in the company being managing director of Maersk Line UK.
