A.P. Moller – Maersk has appointed Vincent Clerc as CEO of Ocean and Logistics and Henriette Hallberg Thygesen as CEO of Towage, Manufacturing & Others as part of an effort towards a more integrated company strategy.
Both Clerc and Thygesen are Maersk veterans with the former having worked for the liner since 1997 and the latter 1994.

We have a simple and agile foundation for profitable growth and the new Executive Board is united in the goal of integrating our value proposition and maximizing the value creation across the business.”
