The top job of running Denmark’s Maersk Tankers and its product tanker stablemate has been split to deal with the major industry changes following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Claus Gronborg, who has managed the Maersk Product Tankers’ fleet of 52 vessels for the last three years, becomes chief executive from 1 October in a new round of management changes.

He takes over from Christian M Ingerslev, who continues as CEO of Maersk Tankers managing a pool of some 180 vessels that includes the product fleet.
