The chief commercial officer of Maersk Line, Lucas Vos, will leave the company at the end of April, the carrier said Friday.
Vos will also vacate his position as a member of Maersk’s Liner Management Board on the same date.
“Lucas Vos has been part of the top management team in Maersk Line for the past five years,” said Maersk Line Chief Executive Officer Søren Skou. “He has been an integral part of turning the company around with the ambitious streamLINE program and lately contributed to the plan of making Maersk Line the most profitable player in the industry.”
Maersk has yet to decide who will replace Vos, but said the process has been initiated. Vos will return to his native Holland “as it has been the plan all along,” Maersk said, “where he will take some time off to consider his next step.”
Vos came to Maersk from P&O Nedlloyd following Maersk’s acquisition of its rival in 2005. He spent 12 years with P&O Nedlloyd and the last eight with Maersk. - Eric Johnson
