Jan A. Hammer resigned as CEO of Norwegian chemical tanker carrier Odfjell on Tuesday, effective immediately. The resignation was caused by disagreements about the strategic management of the carrier going forward, said the board of directors in a statement yesterday.
The board of directors and Jan A. Hammer have disagreed on previous occasions, and this is only healthy when running a company, says Chairman Laurence Odfjell. But these disagreements intensified during the work to review the strategy over the past year, he tells ShippingWatch.
