New Trade Ambassador in Svendborg, Denmark

A unique cooperation between the Municipality of Svendborg and CC Jensen A/S.

This is a brand new idea, never before seen in Denmark – Svendborg Municipality will now have a Business Ambassador connected to the office who will manage and support all business activities of the municipality.

“It is an extraordinary cooperation between CC Jensen and the Municipality of Svendborg,” says Mayor Bo Hansen. “We want to support and develop maritime business in Svendborg, and that is exactly what our new Trade Ambassador Ulrich Ritsing will help us with.”

After more than 43 years as Director of Sales and Marketing at CC Jensen, Ulrich Ritsing has chosen to step into this leadership position as a Business Ambassador. He will continue to be employed by CC Jensen but will work for Svendborg Municipality for 50% of his time.

“I don’t think we’ve seen that anywhere else,” continues Bo Hansen. “This is a very solid partnership between a private company and a municipality that will accelerate the development of the strong maritime presence that we have in the region.”

CC Jensen CEO Stig Due also commented, “It is important for CC Jensen to support local society; we saw opportunities to use Ulrich’s experiences and skills to support business development here.

We are satisfied with this cooperation with the municipality of Svendborg and expect clear results.

No doubt Ulrich will be busy in his new role. He will use his commercial skills, his solid knowledge of the international market and his excellent reputation, for the benefit of many companies in the region.

One of his tasks will be to support the ambitious “NextGen Robotics” project, which aims to establish a national test center for autonomous ship operations. Ulrich will also be part of the maritime start-up environment, where he will focus on marketing start-ups nationally and internationally.
