COPENHAGEN, DENMARK – Klaus Rud Sejling is leaving Maersk according to the Danish shipping news outlet “Shipping Watch”. This was announced on the same day as his boss, Vincent Clerc, was appointed CEO of Ocean & Logistics. CTIO Adam Banks leaves Maersk due to personal reasons.
Sejling had been the Global Head of Logistics and Services at A.P. Moller – Maersk prior to the announcement of his departure. He joined the company in 1997 and has had a number of important assignments at the company including CCO for Greater China and CEO at DAMCO, a Maersk owned freight forwarder and logistics company.
These two latest departures from Maersk come after the high profile departure of Maersk COO Søren Toft in November who left the company to join rival shipping company MSC as its new CEO.
Toft’s departure was followed shortly afterwards by the departure of Maersk’s Chief Financial Officer, Carolina Dybeck Happe, who left the company after just 11 months to join GE.
Sejling’s sudden departure from Maersk comes as a surprise to many. At one point Sejling was said to likely one day to become CEO of Maersk.
