“Not only is AP Moller-Maersk a global leader in shipping, ports and logistics, it is also a company which builds on a strong foundation while leading the transformation of an entire industry through digital innovation and continuous optimization,” Jany said.
Maersk’s executive board will now comprise Skou, Jany, , Vincent Clerc, CEO of Ocean and Logistics, Morten Engelstoft, CEO of APM Terminals, and Henriette Hallberg Thygesen, CEO of Fleet & Strategic Brands.
