“In her tenure as CFO, Carolina Dybeck Happe has created substantial shareholder value, successfully streamlined processes and driven the digital agenda in a well-reputed, global company.
“She draws on a skill set that will benefit our organisation and continued business transformation. I look forward to welcoming Carolina Dybeck Happe to A.P. Møller - Mærsk A/S.”

Soren Skou said: “I have had the pleasure of working closely with Jakob for more than six years and I have always valued Jakob’s enthusiasm and support.
“Jakob inspires as well as challenges the organization. He has led the first part of our digital transformation and has done a great job in driving our strategy and managing the CFO-areas.
“I would like to thank Jakob for a good partnership and his contribution and I wish him all the best in the future.”
Jakob Stausholm said: “It has been an honour and a pleasure to work for Maersk. Søren Skou and the company has shown great confidence in me and I have been offered some of the most exciting job opportunities.
“I very much agree with the new organisational design. It is the right solution for the company, however as a consequence of the change, I have requested to pursue other opportunities.
