New Maersk leadership team under CEO Vincent Clerc.


A.P. Moller – Maersk has announced a new corporate structure with the appointment of 15 executive leaders responsible for continuing to execute the Danish shipping giant’s integrated container logistics strategy.

Effective from February 1, 2023,  the changes follow the appointment of Vincent Clerc as CEO of Maersk on January 1, replacing Soren Skou who took over as CEO in 2016 and was responsible for overseeing Maersk’s transition  

“The business has executed well during the past years, and we have a highly engaged and competent global team ready for the next miles of our transformations,” said Mr. Clerc.

“We face a challenging global economic outlook, a softening market and at the same time our customers are looking to radically improve their supply chains to make them more resilient and agile. This creates urgent needs as well as unique opportunities. To navigate through and beyond this environment, we will intensify our focus on cost discipline and service quality while increasing customer centricity, and decision power in the front line. Hence, I am very pleased to announce our new Executive Leadership Team.”

The new Executive Leadership Team will “jointly own” the execution of Maersk’s integrator strategy and is “composed to create strong alignment across the enterprise as well as clear ownership and accountability for key aspects of the next phase of Maersk’s strategy,” Maersk said.
