Denmark's AP Moller-Maersk, the largest buyer of bunker fuel in the world, has appointed an executive from a chemicals company as its new chief financial officer (CFO).
Patrick Jany, formerly CFO of Switzerland-based Clariant AG, is set to join Maersk as CFO from May 1, the company said Wednesday.
"Patrick brings solid financial experience and a proven record of managing cost discipline as well as profitable growth through M&A and innovation," Soren Skou, CEO of Maersk, said in a statement on the company's website.
Former CFO Carolina Dybeck Happe left Maersk after less than a year in the role to become General Electric's CFO in November.
