At the beginning of 2012, Klaus Nyborg had to make a choice. To stay in Asia’s shipping- and financial centre, Hongkong, where together with his wife and their three boys he had spent close to six years in one of the world’s largest dry bulk shipping companies, stock listed Pacific Basin, first as Executive Vice President, and then the last two years as CEO. Or he could move back to Denmark, to Copenhagen, a move his family had already made.
Klaus Nyborg chose the latter. Professionally, the decision wasn’t easy, and before him lay a new and in several ways uncertain career for the now 49-year-old shipping- and finance man, who, with a degree in financial law from Copenhagen Business School, London Business School, and IMD, has held several senior financial posts in A.P. Moeller-Maersk and Torm.
