AP Moller – Maersk, Nils Smedegaard Andersen

Former CEO of AP Møller-Maersk, Nils Smedegaard Andersen, has become chairman of Unifeeder.

He succeeds former Hapag Lloyd CEO Jesper Præstensgaard, who will stay on as deputy chairman.

The former Maersk chief has several roles – he is a board member at Nordic Capital Funds, a non-executive director at BP and Unilever and chairman of retail group Dansk Supermarked.

He said he was excited by his new role at Unifeeder and would consider expanding its activities, possibly through mergers and acquisitions.

”Unifeeder is a well-run company, fulfilling an important role as partner to both global liner shipping companies and industrial customers across Europe.

“Unifeeder has significantly expanded its network and service offering in recent years and I look forward to working with management to further strengthening its market position by building closer customer relationships and developing the service offering, while considering entering into new markets, possibly through M&A.”

Unifeeder is majority owned by Nordic Capital and has become Europe’s largest feeder and shortsea operator.
