APM’s Henrik Pedersen to head ABP

[ April 30, 2018   //   ]

ABP has appointed Henrik Pedersen as its new chief executive, taking over from James Cooper, who announced his retirement after ten years in the  post last Setpember.
Pedersen (pictured) joins ABP from AP Moller-Maersk’s APM Terminals arm, where he has served as chief commercial officer since January 2017 following 20 years with the group. He takes up his new ABP role in August.

He said: “With ABP handling around 25% of the UK’s seaborne trade, making sure the business can continue to develop and grow is vitally important for our customers and the wider UK economy. It’s an immensely exciting challenge and I look forward to working with everyone at ABP to achieve that goal.”

ABP chairman, Dr Phil Nolan said he “brings with him a wealth of experience and we are confident that under his leadership ABP will continue to go from strength to strength.”
Paying tribute to departing chief executive James Cooper, Dr Nolan said, “We are deeply grateful to James for his outstanding contribution to the business and wish him every success for the future.”
