Wallem Group CEO steps down after three years

Wallem Group’s current chief executive officer (CEO) John-Kaare Aune will leave the company in January 2024 after five years.

John-Kaare Aune joined Wallem in 2019 as managing director of Shipmanagement and was appointed as Group CEO in January 2021.

On his departure, John-Kaare Aune stated, "It was a difficult decision to step aside as the Wallem Group CEO. However, with operations having normalised after the impact of the pandemic, I felt that the time was right."

He added, "Now that my successor has been identified, I will be exploring new opportunities. It has been an honour to have had the opportunity to be part of the Wallem Group, we have improved client service levels, continued the digitalisation of the company services, and set the foundation for Wallem’s journey towards decarbonisation."

Following Aune’s departure, Wallem's Board of Directors has appointed John Rowley to succeed him, taking over his new duties on 1 January 2024.

Rowley is currently senior vice president of Global Food and Transportation Divisions at NSF, prior to which he was CEO of SAI Global Assurance following eight years on the executive team at the Lloyds Register Group, as CEO of Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) as well as the Group’s Asia Pacific President.
