Former hotel veteran Satu Andersson took over the helm Birka Cruises 2013. Since then, the company has made a repositioning that has led to more satisfied guests, higher sales and greater market share. In recent years, the shipping company has also launched several unique cruise products and has been named Sweden's best shipping company several times.

- I have not once regretted the decision to accept the challenge as CEO of Birka Cruises. We have driven a high pace of development while being responsive to customer requests. A work that has also resulted in several important strategic collaborations to position Birka Cruises as Sweden's only purely cruise company. For those who now get the chance to take over, a company with awesome employees and a unique product awaits. Just go for it! says Satu Andersson.

When the year ends, Birka Cruises will be able to look back at an 2019 with several new records. In addition to a record summer and sales record for several of the company's thematic periods, sales increase will land at over + 20 MSEK compared with the previous year.

- With all the positive development of the company that has occurred in recent years, Satu has accomplished large parts of the mission we described when she stepped in. As we now look ahead, we are looking for a CEO who will continue to develop the company's business and drive a high level of activity. Until a new CEO is in place, Satu will remain in his post, says Björn Blomqvist, President and CEO of the Eckero Group.
