Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) is looking for their new Vice President Pricing.

Put your commercial savviness to good use in a global setting, with the support of 10+ people in a dedicated pricing team.

We serve half the world’s fleet in any given year, delivering something from our wide product portfolio to ~26 000 vessels.

WSS is fundamentally a trader of high-quality products, making pricing something we need to be good at.

Following a period of intense focus on price consistency, we are now able to work more with optimizing our pricing, to make sure we give customers value for money, while at the same time optimizing the growth and profitability of WSS. Additionally, as new products, services and digital solutions are also in the making, pricing in WSS will be about a lot more than just maintenance of an existing structure.

In addition to domain knowledge/experience from the field of pricing, we are also looking for someone with strong leadership and communication skills.
