Thorngren, currently CFO of Svitzer Australia, has held leadership positions within the field of corporate finance for 15 years, and has worked within the maritime industry since 2010.

“I look forward to joining a company which is engaged in diversifying its business and delivering solutions to the energy sector. Ensuring the Business Services function supports Maersk Supply Service’s global operations in the best way possible will be paramount to the company’s success as it moves into new industries and segments,” says Karl Thorngren.
