Johan Wedell-Wedellsborg was never supposed to be where he is today. In fact, at one point he told himself that would never be here. But, by a detour, he ended up taking over his father’s company, he says in an interview with ShippingWatch.
“When I was young, I promised myself that I wouldn’t enter the shipping company. But after finishing in the military, I was bouncing around, doing odd jobs here and there, and I didn’t really know what to do. Some German friends offered me a trainee position in shipping in Hamborg, where I could take a degree on the side. I thought, I’m gonna try this, and then we’ll see what comes of it. So there were no big well-laid plans saying that I just had to enter shipping,” says Johan Wedell-Wedellsborg, sitting in his office at Dannebrog Rederi’s headquarters across from Rungsted Port.
