As of 1 May 2024, Dennis Tetzlaff is Stena Line’s new Chief Operating Officer Fleet and part of the group management team.

​Dennis Tetzlaff enters his new role with a wealth of experience, having worked in various professions within the shipping and cruise industry over the past two decades. Most recently, he comes from TUI Cruises, where he served as Vice President Fleet Operations & Newbuild.

“I’m delighted to welcome Dennis to Stena Line. He brings extensive expertise from our industry and possesses the kind of curiosity and leadership we need to be a resilient company for many years to come”, states Niclas Mårtensson, CEO of Stena Line.

Dennis has a degree in nautical science and maritime transport from the University of Applied Sciences in Emden/Leer, Germany, but his career at sea already started at age 20, when he began working as a Deck cadet on a container ship in the Caribbean.
