Clive Richardson has resigned from V. Group, one of the world’s largest shipmanagers, and will be replaced on an interim basis by former Maersk high-flyer Hanne Sørensen.
Richardson had been at the helm of the group since 2009 during which time he oversaw the company being taken over by private equity concern Advent International earlier this year.
After a diverse career, largely tied with AP Moller-Maersk Group, Sørensen stepped down as head of its logistics unit Damco last December. Previous roles she has held included being the CEO of Maersk Tankers. Sørensen joins a company with some familiar faces, not least Jesper Kjaedegaard, another ex-Maersk official who joined the board in March.
The search for a new full time CEO is well advanced, V.Group said in a statement today.
