MCC Transport appoints new CEO as Wichmann departs

Maersk Line’s Singapore-headquartered Intra-Asia operator MCC Transport has announced changes to its senior management resulting from Tim Wichmann leaving the company to seek opportunities outside of A.P. Moller Maersk Group. Wichmann departs after nine years in the CEO role and 27 years at Maersk.

Bo Wegener, currently Maersk Line’s South East Asia managing director, will take over as CEO while Rupesh Jain, currently Maersk Line’s South Korea country manager, will assume the role of South East Asia managing director.

Robbert van Trooijen, Maersk Line’s Asia-Pacific CEO, commented: “The appointment of Bo Wegener as MCC’s new CEO makes me confident that MCC is in an exceptionally talented pair of hands. Since joining the A.P. Moller Maersk Group in 1995 Bo has distinguished himself in every role he has undertaken. Under his leadership I believe that MCC will continue to grow and succeed.”

MCC currently operates a fleet of over 70 vessels ranging from 1,100 teu to 5,000 teu.
