LEMAN appoints interim CEO

Denmark-based transport and logistics company, LEMAN, has announced a leadership change.

LEMAN Group CEO, Thomas Krøyer, has decided to leave the company after seven years of service to pursue new endeavours.

Over the years, Krøyer has reportedly transformed and optimised the LEMAN organisation by creating a real management structure, developing LEMAN in a number of areas, and introduced ‘oneLEMAN’ all over the Group. At the same time, he has conducted and executed several mergers and acquisitions and has been at the origin of an international expansion in China. In addition to this, he has placed LEMAN on the map for vertical products such as Pharma.

”We thank Thomas for all these initiatives which have helped LEMAN developing new business opportunities and increased our presence in the global market,” said LEMAN Board Chairman, Philippe Ziegler.

”At the same time, we are very pleased to announce that Mr. Ole Ringheim, member of the LEMAN Board of Directors, has accepted the interim role of Group CEO until the hiring and appointment of a permanent CEO has been conducted.”

The LEMAN Interim Group CEO, Ole Ringheim, has extensive experience in freight forwarding and leadership from his time as CEO for DHL in the Nordics and Asia. In addition to this, Ringheim has been a member of the LEMAN Board of Directors since September 2019 and has an in-depth knowledge of the company.

Ringheim joined the company on 1 June 2021.

LEMAN was founded in 1900 and currently operates a total of 29 offices across eight countries.

The company is a member of the following industry groups: International Federation of Freight Forwarders Association (FIATA), International Air Transport Association (IATA), Danish Freight Forwarders Association (Dansk Speditørforening), Nordic Association of Freight Forwarders and British International Freight Association (BIFA).
