On 27 July, Vytautas Kaunas, who until now has worked as the Commerce Director of Klaipėda Stevedoring Company (KLASCO), took the office of the CEO of KLASCO.
“We thank Mr. Audrius Pauža for many years of consistent work heading one of the strategic companies of UAB koncernas ACHEMOS GRUPĖ. He contributed to making KLASCO one of the strongest stevedoring companies in the Klaipėda port. However, the market develops fast and competition is becoming more and more fierce, therefore, we look for ways how to direct the company towards faster growth and development. We believe that the new head will manage to achieve the goals set for the company”, Lidija Lubienė, the Chair of the Board of KLASCO said.
The newly appointed General Manager of KLASCO Vytautas Kaunas studied engineering in Klaipėda University and was awarded the qualification degree of the Master in port management from the World Maritime University (Sweden). V. Kaunas started his career in 1992 in VĮ Klaipėdos valstybinio jūrų uosto direkcija (Klaipėda State Seaport Authority) and since 2005 he has worked as the Commerce Director of KLASCO. He is a member of the Academic Council of the Lithuanian Maritime Academy.
