Wallenius Wilhelmsen chief operating officer Erik Noeklebye has resigned after 25 years with the car carrier giant.

The executive vice president and head of shipping services said one reason for the move is so that he and his family can return from South Korea to Scandinavia in November.

“Twenty-five years in the company, working through challenges and successes with all my amazing colleagues, makes you take stock of your life and career,” Noeklebye said.
