”Steen Karstensen is a widely respected leader who has built a strong global procurement organization serving all of Maersk’s business units, generating significant savings. Additionally, he has been responsible for Maersk Oil Trading and Maersk Maritime Technology, which has given him in-depth exposure to also the energy related aspects of the Maersk business model,” said group vice CEO Claus V. Hemmingsen.

He added: “In addition, Steen helped in creating Maersk Management Consulting from scratch, which has brought talent and new thinking to our businesses. I’m excited that he will now take on the challenge in heading Maersk Supply Service in their next chapter of the journey.”

Steen Karstensen’s previous role in procurement included overseeing Maersk Maritime Technology, Maersk Oil Trading and Maersk Management Consulting.
