Mr Jansen´s hands-on experience related to planning and implementing organizational and operational changes critical to the provision of cost-efficient and high-quality services is well suited to achieve these goals. The Company will present its strategy for a revitalised Seabird together with the release of its 3rd qtr numbers on November 7th.
