The employees and the board of J. Lauritzen learned with sadness of the untimely passing of Rolf Andersen last week after a short illness.

At the time of his passing, Rolf Andersen was working as a Fleet Manager at Lauritzen Kosan and, during his 15 years with the company, he had had a range of different positions in the gas tanker division of J. Lauritzen.

Rolf was originally educated as a Master Mariner at the Copenhagen School of Navigation. He later graduated with a Masters’ degree in Information Technology from the IT University of Copenhagen and, most recently, with an MBA in Shipping and Logistics from Copenhagen Business School.

Until his recent passing, Rolf Andersen was a member of J. Lauritzen’s board, elected by his colleagues.

Rolf was a highly competent and respected colleague and his warm sense of humour spread happiness, fun and positivity throughout the organisation.

Our deepest condolences and thoughts go to Rolf’s family and friends, in particular his wife and daughter.

On behalf of our employees and the Board of J. Lauritzen,

Mads P. Zacho

CEO
