AP Moller-Maersk has unveiled a new executive leadership team with the focus on diversity.

The move is being implemented days after Vincent Clerc replaced Soren Skou on 1 January as chief executive of the Danish liner giant.

Clerc will push through a new organisational structure shaped around 15 roles and areas of responsibility.

“This team includes leaders with a long tenure within Maersk and leaders with experience from outside the company,” he said.
