General Manager – Smart Vessel, Wärtsilä Voyage
Mathias holds the role of General Manager – Smart Vessel at Wartsila Voyage. Wärtsilä Voyage – a business unit of Wartsila Group - combines bridge infrastructure, cloud data services, decision support systems, and smart port solutions to connect smart vessels to smart ports. In this capacity, he is responsible for the commercialization of autonomous, semi-autonomous and decision support technologies in the region. Prior to joining Wartsila, he held various roles in chartering, operations, ship brokerage and ship agency with a number of shipping companies. He made the switch in career direction after experiencing numerous inefficiencies both onboard and ashore, that could easily be solved with modern technology. His main motivation today is to combine his industry expertise with the capabilities of a technology company, to remove the inefficiencies experienced in the past, and in the process make life just a little bit greener, safer and easier for everyone involved. Mathias was educated through Maersk’s inhouse shipping education, and later embarked on an executive MBA in Shipping and Logistics at Copenhagen Business School.
