Seaber appoints Henrik Dahl to Chairman of the Board
We at Seaber are proud to welcome a new Chairman of the Board, Henrik Dahl. Currently, Henrik serves as a board member and advisor for several companies in the marine and technology space including Saxdor Yachts, Awake.ai, and GIM Robotics. He is also the co-founder of Blue Alliance, a platform that helps innovative maritime companies reach global markets.
Our CEO and co-founder, Sebastian Sjöberg is thrilled about this news: “We are excited to welcome Henrik to our board during an important time in Seaber’s evolution. Henrik is a recognized leader in the maritime technology industry whose extensive commercial and corporate strategy experience will be instrumental in executing on our vision of digitally transforming the bulk shipping industry.”
Henrik is a highly successful tech entrepreneur with over 15 years of experience in marine tech. Previously he was a board member and interim CEO for StormGeo, a leading weather analytics company that was recently sold to Alfa Laval. He also co-founded and led Eniram, a pioneer in maritime data and analytics which was sold to Wärtsilä in 2016. He has ample experience in all aspects of building startups to scale, including sales expansion, fundraising, and M&A activities.
Henrik himself feels excited about joining the team: “Seaber is a maritime startup to look out for. Seaber’s ability to add value to charterers and shipowners with the schedule planning is crystal clear and serves as a natural first step in a broader optimisation of the whole shipping & logistics cycle to make the industry more efficient and environmentally friendly. I look forward to contributing to Seaber’s future growth and success as the company develops its software tools further and expands to new markets. I am especially excited about working with such a talented and motivated team of professionals and entrepreneurs”.
When not working with technology companies Henrik likes to travel and enjoy life. Before COVID he spent one winter together with his wife and two children travelling around the world. During the Pandemic, with less travelling, his focus has been on building the most immersive racing and flying simulator possible in his basement in Espoo, Finland.
We warmly welcome Henrik to our growing team.
