Survitec appoints Robert Steen as CEO

(Posted on 20/10/22)

Strengthening the company’s position as the world’s leading Survival Technology solutions partner, Survitec has announced the appointment of Robert Steen Kledal as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

As CEO, Robert will be responsible for setting Survitec’s strategic direction. He will lead the Survitec Executive team and sit on the Survitec Board.

At the start of the year, Survitec launched a new organisational structure designed to make Survitec an even better partner – increased levels of customer centricity and agility were the main focus.

Robert will continue the transformation work, positioning Survitec customers at the heart of every decision while achieving profitable growth.

A key focus for Robert will be Survitec’s workforce of over 3,000 professionals, ensuring they feel connected to the Survitec purpose, which is “We Exist to Protect Lives.”

Robert has over 30 years of experience in executive level roles on a global scale. He was CEO at Wrist Ship Supply, the world’s leading ship and offshore supplier of provisions & stores, for over nine years. He led the organisation and its 1,600 colleagues, through digital transformation, enabling substantial improvement to how the business engaged its customers.

His experience spans the maritime and defence industries. He has also held several senior positions, during his 21 years at Moeller-Maersk Group and served in the Danish Army as a Sergeant. In addition to his role as CEO of Survitec, Robert is also on the Board of Directors at Wrist Ship Supply and Blue Water Shipping, a global provider of tailor-made transport and logistics solutions.

He has lived and worked all over the world and is familiar with five languages.

When asked why he chose to join the team Trusted to Protect Lives, he commented, “Coming from the shipping industry, I was instantly attracted to the inspiring purpose of Survitec. I look forward to building on this great legacy and the achievements made to position Survitec as the global leader in Survival Technology for our customers worldwide. Not least to service our customers’ requirements effectively.”
