Eimskip boss moves to the US to run business in North America – Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) – The head of the Icelandic shipping company Eimskip is leaving the job to head the company's North American division in Canada and the US.

The company said Gylfi Sigfússon will move to the US after leaving the current position at the end of the year. Andrew Haines will remain as head of Eimskip USA.

Sigfússon led Eimskip's US and Canadian operations before being charged with restructuring the company following the 2008 global financial crisis.

The volume and value of shipments by container through Portland's International Marine Terminal has more than doubled since Eimskip relocated its US headquarters to the city in 2013. The company has other US offices in New York, Boston and Norfolk, Virginia.
