Survitec appoints new CEO

Survitec has announced the appointment of Robert Steen Kledal as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer. As CEO, Robert will be responsible for setting the company’s strategic direction. He will lead the Survitec Executive team and sit on the Survitec board.

At the beginning of the year, the company launched a new organisational structure designed to make Survitec a better partner, with increased levels of customer centricity and agility being the main focus.

Robert will continue transformation work, positioning Survitec customers at the heart of decisions that the company makes while ensuring growth. One key focus will be Survitec’s workforce of over 8000 people to ensure they feel connected to the company’s purpose.

Robert brings with him 30 years of experience in executive level roles on a global scale. Previously, he served as CEO at Wrist Ship Supply, a ship and offshore supplier of provisions and stores, for over nine years. His experience spans the maritime and defence industries. He has also held several senior positions, during his 21 years at Moeller-Maersk Group and served in the Danish Army as a Sergeant.

In addition to his role as CEO of Survitec, Robert is also on the Board of Directors at Wrist Ship Supply and Blue Water Shipping, a provider of transport and logistic solutions.

When asked why he’d chosen to join the team Trusted to Protect Lives, he said: “Coming from the shipping industry, I was instantly attracted to the inspiring purpose of Survitec. I look forward to building on this great legacy and the achievements made to position Survitec as the global leader in Survival Technology for our customers worldwide. Not least to service our customers’ requirements effectively.”
