Maersk Container Industry (MCI), a subsidiary of A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk), has appointed current CCO Søren Leth Johannsen as new CEO.
Johannsen will take over the company in November, replacing Sean Fitzgerald who has decided to step down relocate to the US.
“I am very pleased that Søren Leth Johannsen has accepted being appointed CEO of MCI,” said Henriette Hallberg Thygesen, CEO of Fleet & Strategic Brands at Maersk.
“With his many years at MCI, he has great insight in both market and customers, which will be valuable on the journey ahead.
“I would also like to thank Sean Fitzgerald for all his dedication since joining five years ago. He has been instrumental in MCI’s transformation and is handing over the baton of a financially resilient company.
Søren Leth Johannsen has been with MCI for the last 17 years and has held the role as CCO since joining.
“MCI is a high-performing and innovative company with a very skilled and talented organisation, and I am excited to take on the position as CEO,” commented Johannsen.
“In recent years, the company has transformed and is now considered the leader within container cooling technology.
“I am looking forward to continuing this development as we also embark on the work to define the future structural setup for MCI.”
