Mr. Michael Pram Rasmussen

The Danish conglomerate AP Moller-Maersk, which owns Maersk Line, has announced that Michael Pram Rasmussen step down as the Chairman of the Board of Directors. He will remain in his position until the Annual General Meeting on March 28th, and he will not stand for re-election. The Board of Directors said that they intend to elect Jim Hagemann Snabe to succeed Michael Pram Rasmussen as Chairman following the Annual General Meeting.

This news follows AP Moller-Maersk reporting only its second ever annual loss in the past seven decades. The company is in the midst of breaking apart it’s business units, centering the group again around the container liner business, and spinning of their other units like their oil business. The market seems to be recovering, as demand is beginning to recover and the worst may be over.
