From 1 May 2021, Jonas Munch Agerskov, current Head of Renewables in Maersk Supply Service, will take over the role of Chief Commercial Officer following Carsten Gram Haagensen, who has decided to pursue a career outside the maritime industry.
Agerskov has been in Maersk Supply Service since 2012 in various roles, latest as Chief Strategy Officer and Head of Renewables. He has been instrumental in establishing several of the recent strategic partnerships, such as the support of the ocean-cleaning non-profit organisation The Ocean Cleanup and the collaboration with Ørsted, testing an offshore charging buoy concept.
“With Jonas, Maersk Supply Service gets a CCO that knows the company from the inside and can bring fresh eyes to our commercial department. He has demonstrated that he is excellent at building strong partnerships and picking up trends in the industry. Many of our key customers are expanding into offshore renewable industries, so with Jonas heading some of our key renewables projects and our commercial department, I am confident that we can strengthen synergies that accelerate our green transition and support our customers’ journey,” said CEO Steen S Karstensen.
“It is central for our strategy in Maersk Supply Service to always search for new ways to increase the value we add to our customers’ long-term success. With our solutions offerings, expansion into the renewable industries and decarbonisation efforts, we have an even stronger value proposition that aligns with many of our key customers’ agenda. I look forward to continuing to offer safe and efficient operations and deepening our many good customer relationships,” said Agerskov.
Carsten Gram Haagensen has been in Maersk since 2006, and from December 2016 as CCO for Maersk Supply Service, where he has played a key role in increasing the customer focus.
“I would like to thank Carsten for the dedication and passion he has brought into the Commercial organisation worldwide. He has been a crucial part of the strategic change that we have gone through the last four years, and Maersk Supply Service now has a stronger customer focus throughout our organisation. I wish Carsten the best of luck with his new endeavours,” said Karstensen.
