Maersk Poaches New Finance Chief From Assa Abloy

Denmark's A.P. Moller-Maersk has chosen Carolina Dybeck Happe as its new chief financial officer, it said on Wednesday.

Happe will take the position at a time when Maersk is undergoing a strategic transformation from a broader conglomerate, including an oil business, to a more focused shipping company.

The 45-year Swede, who comes from a CFO position at the world's biggest lock group, Assa Abloy, will start on 1 January 2019 – at the latest – Maersk said in a statement.

The move comes after former CFO Jacob Stausholm stepped down in March, after the company decided to separate the finance role from its IT and digital-transformation function. He later took up the CFO position at mining company Rio Tinto.
