The new UK hub allows Nautilus Labs to collaborate closely with its local clients and partners. Nautilus Labs takes a data-driven approach and leverages machine learning to provide voyage insights and recommendations to its clients, empowering them to optimise operations.
An industry veteran, Jan Wilhelmsson, is the company’s most recent hire and will lead revenue generation activities. Wilhelmsson joins with over 30 years of diverse shipping industry experience. Prior to Nautilus, as a former Master Mariner, he moved into commercially operating institutional-sized fleets before focusing on digital transformation and fuel efficiency on the tech supplier side as well as the carrier side.
“We’re proud to have Jan join Nautilus and lead our UK presence,” said Nautilus Labs CEO, Matt Heider. “His deep knowledge and expertise in ocean shipping is a great addition to our team. Our recent expansion is just the first step towards increasing our global footprint. London is a strategic hub for our business, allowing us to attract diverse talent from the shipping, financial, and tech industries while being close to our clients and partners.”
Jan Wilhelmsson added: “It’s always a thrill working with a company experiencing steep growth. In the years ahead we will see the shipping industry go through massive changes driven by new regulations on emission reductions. I’m excited to join Nautilus, as I strongly believe the use of data and artificial intelligence is integral for gradually decarbonising the shipping industry. Having previously commercially operated fleets myself, I know that sustainability and profitability have to go hand in hand. And this is exactly what we’re focusing on with our clients.”
