His task will now be to realise the full potential of the four businesses in Services & Other Shipping and together with the businesses CEO’s define a plan for future growth. Hanne B. Sorensen has successfully repositioned Maersk Tankers, which now has a clear path for the future and she will bring organizational and market experience to Damco, which is in the midst of rolling out a global operational model - One Damco.”
