Maersk Tankers’ vessel optimisation spin-off ZeroNorth has landed a big name from the wider Maersk group to drive its growth.

Maersk Broker Advisory Services (MBAS) managing director Jesper Bo Hansen is joining the Copenhagen company as chief revenue officer.

Hansen has more than 30 years of maritime experience gained across markets in Europe, Asia and the Americas at Torm and Heidmar, as well as a director role at Team Tankers International.
