In episode 117 we meet Michael Kjellberg, Owner of Swedish Orient Line, SOL and he shares glimpses from a long and successful career and all about Gothenburg Chartering, Imperial Shipping, Swedish Orient Line and now Wallenius SOL, the “new kid on the block”, the newly formed Swedish ship owning company, servicing the forest industry.
Michael started his shipping career by going to sea on CARMEN, a car carrier, some 50 years ago, but found out that he was more interested in shipbroking and chartering, so he went ashore again. Now, the circle is closing as he is the sole owner of the Swedish Orient Line, which is now forming this joint venture with Wallenius Lines.
When asked about his success, he shares that secret is to only hire who are smarter than yourself and build a loyal team to share both challenges and successes.
