Recruitment of a CFO to Hutchison Ports Sweden

Hutchison Ports Stockholm is currently managing commercial operation of the container terminal located at Frihamnen in central Stockholm. A new port facility is under construction by Stockholms Hamnar at Norvik, Nynäshamn. The new facility will include a container terminal and roll-on roll-off facilities and will replace the Frihamnen terminal as soon as it is open for trade. Hutchison Ports has a 25-year concession to operate the new container terminal from start of operations in May 2020. To secure the financial management of the new setup, we needed a senior CFO, for which one of the initial key challenges will be to work against tight timelines when it comes to building the finance organisation and to secure a smooth transition. At the same time we needed someone who is able to multi-task and handle everything from Board matters to daily routines, says Lawrence Yam, CEO and Head of Commercial Europe.
