Tallink Grupp’s Supervisory Board has approved changes to the Management Board.

Kadri Land has resigned from the Management Board and was replaced by Elise Nassar (pictured) as a new member.

Land has worked at Tallink Grupp in various roles since 2005 and was appointed to the company’s Management Board for the second time in February, 2019.

She submitted her resignation citing personal grounds, which was accepted by the Supervisory Board. As a result, her mandate as a Member of the Management Board terminated on 6th March, 2024.

Nassar joined Tallink Grupp in February, 2018 as a Data Protection Officer, but a year later, in 2019 she was appointed to head the group’s internal audit department and since the summer of 2022, she holds the position of Group Head of Legal and Head of the Internal Audit and Internal Control Departments.

Prior to joining Tallink, Nassar worked as a lawyer at Ekspress Grupp, the largest media group in the Baltic States.

In addition, the Estonian Shipowner’s Association had appointed her as President on 15th November, 2015.

Commenting on the changes Tallink Grupp CEO, Paavo Nõgene said: ”We are sincerely grateful to Kadri Land for her significant contribution to the development of our company over the last 19 years. It is difficult to overestimate her contribution to the development of our business and operations in Sweden and the development of our cargo operations, and to the overall development of shipping in the Baltic Sea region.

“Kadri is and will be one of the people remembered for shaping shipping in our region in the first two decades of the 21st century. We wish her well for the future and with her next endeavours.

”Elise Nassar will bring new energy and a strong legal background to our Management Board, which will be of great benefit to our business in today’s rapidly changing and developing world of regulations and requirements.

“Elise has proved herself in the company over the years she has worked here, gradually taking responsibility for large and complex areas of the business and has demonstrated her capabilities leading challenging and vital projects to both our Supervisory Board, as well as our significant business and finance partners.

“I firmly believe that Elise’s competence, background, and experiences will greatly complement those of the existing Board Members and will help us strongly steer our business towards greater and faster recovery after the many crisis years,” he said.
