I like change, action and influence. I have seen the technologist’s perspective first-hand and understand the intersection between technology and the positive impact it can have on maritime safety and sustainability.
RightShip’s CEO Steen Lund took the helm in December 2020 and usually works from its growing Singapore-based innovation hub.
Steen commenced his career in his native Denmark with integrated shipping firm A.P. Moller - Maersk and remained with the company in management positions for 21 years. The roles took him to locations including Pakistan, South Korea, India, Singapore and Hong Kong.
In 2010 he accepted a position as Executive Vice President and Head of Asia Pacific with Germanischer Lloyd (GL) in Shanghai.
Following the GL merger with Det Norske Veritas (DNV) in 2013, Steen returned to Singapore and spent a total of eight years with GL and DNV GL in Asia. He subsequently completed senior management positions with Radio Holland and Executive Ship Management.
Steen is a strong advocate for improved digitisation across the maritime industry. He draws on experiences including his previous position of council member of the Singapore Shipping Association, where he played pivotal roles as Chairman of the Technical Committee and the Digital Transformation Committee. He’s so committed to advancing maritime technology, that his desire to ‘get some skin in the game’ led him to become an angel investor for several technology companies, that he seeks to see succeed.
Steen uses his digital expertise to build on RightShip’s core business propositions, while also executing a strategic roadmap to partner or acquire further digital capabilities into RightShip.
When he’s not steering the future direction of RightShip, Steen enjoys running, golf and cycling.
