Gunvor Ulstein has been re-appointed to the role of Chief Executive Officer for Ulstein Group, following a four-year break from the top job.
Ulstein Group is a third-generation, family-owned company and a renowned provider of ship designs, shipbuilding, and system solutions for ships. The company developed the X-Bow hull which is used by a number of expedition cruise lines, including Australia’s Aurora Expeditions’ Greg Mortimer and Sylvia Earle.
In November 2023, Gunvor Ulstein returned to the company in the role of acting CEO. Following a recent Ulstein Group Board Meeting, she was re-appointed CEO of Ulstein Group.
Tore Ulstein, Chair of the Board of Ulstein Group, said he was very pleased that Gunvor had taken on the position of CEO.
“Gunvor Ulstein represents the third generation in Ulstein Group. She has held several positions in Ulstein, but already as a 29-year-old in 1999, she took on the top executive role, a position she held for almost 22 years until 2020.”
“Gunvor represents continuity, and she has been heading the group through upturns and downturns.”
“Ulstein’s strategy is sustainable growth, internationalisation, and innovation. We are a solid and long-term partner, working to give our customers a competitive edge and helping to reduce their risks along the way,” Tore continued.
“For more than a century, Ulstein has lived up to market expectations through our creativeness and innovation. The future success will depend on our ability to come up with new ideas and our willingness to challenge conventional ways of doing things. With creative enthusiasm, we will work on combining skills, knowledge, and creativity to come up with new concepts, solutions and products that can carry the maritime sector into the future. Gunvor Ulstein is committed to achieving results together with all our skilled employees. We are confident that she will play a key role in turning Ulstein’s potential into reality in the coming years,” concluded Tore Ulstein.
