Maersk Tankers has appointed Eva Birgitte Bisgaard as its Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), as the company continues to strengthen its service to its partners and customers. This includes using digitisation to enhance the performance of partners’ vessels, which will reduce CO2 emissions and optimise earnings.
Bisgaard will be joining Maersk Tankers after 19 years with the Danish Telco operator TDC, during which time she held a wide range of senior management positions. For the past three years, she was Senior Vice President of the consumer unit YouSee. She has played an active role in the transformation of TDC, creating and delivering an enhanced customer and partner experience through the expanded use of digital solutions. Previously, she held commercial vice president positions in the company’s business-to-business divisions.
At Maersk Tankers, Bisgaard will spearhead the company’s commercial engagement with partners and customers. The company has been on a growth trajectory in recent years, increasing the number of vessels under commercial management to 224 and it is looking to grow further.
”We are building scale through partnerships, using the vast amount of data at our disposal to boost commercial performance and make a positive impact on the climate. Eva Birgitte is an inclusive people leader who shares our values. She has a proven track record of leading business transformations, embracing digitisation and maintaining long-standing relations with partners in a highly competitive industry. This makes her a strong fit for Maersk Tankers and our strategic ambitions to shape the future of the industry,” says Christian M. Ingerslev, CEO of Maersk Tankers.
Bisgaard will join Maersk Tankers on 1 October 2020. She will report to Ingerslev and become a member of the Leadership Team.
“I am excited to have the opportunity to work for a company with the proud history and bold ambitions of Maersk Tankers. Having spent my career within the fast-moving tech field, I look forward to helping Maersk Tankers and its partners develop and deploy digital technology to respond to industry and environmental challenges and opportunities. We will work in tandem with our partners and customers, creating solutions together that meet their needs,” says Bisgaard.
Bisgaard is Norwegian and holds a Master in International Business from Aarhus University, Denmark.
