Henriette Thygesen was appointed chairwoman of the board of MSS on 1 June 2019. A shipping industry veteran with more than 25 years’ experience, Ms Thygesen joined AP-Moller-Maersk as a management trainee in 1994.

Ms Thygesen said the award was not hers, but belonged to the entire company.

“I do feel it’s not really my award. It is an award that belongs to the employees of Maersk Supply and the leadership of Maersk Supply,” she said. “It’s a recognition of all the hard work that’s been done over the past years to transform the company in very tough times. It’s required a lot of stamina and a lot of creativity, and I see my role as chairman of the board to support that.”
