DSA hunts successor
The Danish Shipowners’ Association (DSA) needs a new chairperson as Norden CEO Carsten Mortensen heads to Asia.
DSA said Mortensen was stepping down as chairman after landing a job to run BW Group in Singapore this week.
He became a director at DSA in 2005, before becoming deputy chairman in 2009 and chairman in 2011.
"Carsten Mortensen has worked very hard on behalf of the Danish Shipowners' Association for nearly ten years," said acting chairman Claus Hemmingsen, CEO of Maersk Drilling.
"It is excellent recognition for Carsten Mortensen and Danish shipping that the global industry now looks to Denmark to recruit its top managers."
Hemmingsen has been deputy chairman since 2012.
