Maersk Group’s chief financial officer, Jakob Stausholm, has decided to leave the company at the end of the month, as his finance role will now fall under the remit of IT.
Mr Stausholm joined AP Møller-Maersk in December 2016 to play a leading role in the Danish firm’s restructuring from conglomerate into the Transport & Logistics business, where he held an influential role as chief finance, strategy and transformation officer.
