Tommy Thomsen joins the Board of the Danish Shipowners’ Association

The Board of the Danish Shipowners’ Association is again extended to six members. CEO of Nordic Tankers and former Maersk ship owner Tommy Thomsen is the new man for the job.

It will be another ship owner with a background in the Maersk Group who joins the newly appointed Board presented by the Danish Shipowners’ Association on Thursday. Former ship owner in Maersk and current CEO of newly formed shipping company Nordic Tankers, Tommy Thomsen, will fill the void left behind when former president Lars Vang Christesen left the Board.

He was replaced by Norden CEO Carsten Mortensen, who was reelected to continue his work as president, while Claus V. Hemmingsen, partner of A. P. Moeller-Maersk, was elected vice president.

The other members of the Board are CEO Torben Janholt of J. Lauritzen A/S, CEO Niels Smedegaard of DFDS A/S, and CEO Jacob Meldgaard of Torm A/S.

“With the addition of Tommy Thomsen to the Board we have ensured the representation of the wide range of Danish shipping. Furthermore, Tommy Thomsen and his extensive experience will be a valuable asset to the Danish Shipowners’ Association,” says Peter Bjerregaard, CEO of the Danish Shipowners’ Association.
