Change of guard in DFDS BU Channel
Filip Hermann takes up the role as VP of BU Channel. He follows Kasper Moos, who will focus fully on leading BU Group Passenger through the COVID-19 crisis and regaining growth after the pandemic.
Filip Hermann will now consider himself as training on the job and spend time meeting as many colleagues as possible and collecting everybody’s good ideas. Over the next few days, he will visit colleagues in Dover, Dunkerque, Calais and Dieppe, and the vessels.
“There is enough to do. We need to navigate business safely through the COVID-19 storm, prepare for Brexit and get ready to receive and deploy our new ferry, Côte D’Opale,” Filip Hermann says.
Filip has now moved with his family to Canterbury, about 25 kilometres north–west of Dover, where he and his wife are expecting their second child to be born soon.
“BU Channel is blessed with a remarkable leadership team who know their business, their customers, ships and people inside out. They will know how to support Filip, so together they can bring the business safely through even major challenges such as the current second wave of COVID–19 and the end of the Brexit transition period,” says Kasper Moss.
“I am also extremely pleased that I will continue working with BU Channel through our collaboration on the passenger business and look forward to a future when travel restrictions are a thing of the past and travelling is flourishing again.”
