Non-vessel-operating common carrier Ecu-Line has made several changes to its Far East management.
“This step has been taken as part of the long-term development strategy for the region,” the company said.
Already in February, Uday Shetty was appointed the new chief operating officer for the Asia-Pacific region. Today, Ecu-Line said Mike Dye, currently regional chief executive officer for Asia-Pacific, will leave the company.
Dye, who has headed the region for about four years, established Antwerp-based Ecu-Line’s pan-China network of owned offices and expanded the group's footprint in the Asia-Pacific region, including adding offices in Indonesia’s Jakarta, Surabaya and Semarang.
Ecu-Line said Shetty will now take over the regional CEO responsibilities for Asia-Pacific. A native of India, Shetty has worked in several positions in different country locations for the NVO, including Mumbai, Antwerp and Singapore.
Kris De Witte, managing director of Ecu-Hold, said “Asia is a growth market for our organization… With Uday, we found the manager who will integrate this region even stronger into our global network.”
Based in Singapore, Shetty is member of the Ecu-Line’s executive committee and will report directly to the Group CEOs Marc Stoffelen and Suryanarayanan S.
