Maersk Tankers expands executive team

Maersk Tankers is moving to reorganize the business that manages chartering, partner and operations activities. It also announced that it will be adding two new leaders to its executive team.

The commercial business will be divided into three strategic areas: Chartering and Freight Solutions, Commercial and Operations.

The company has appointed Tom Hewitson as Head of Chartering and Freight Solutions, Eva Birgitte Bisgaard will continue as Chief Commercial Officer and Aditya Trehan, Global Head of Operations, is being elevated to the executive team.

Tom Hewitson will lead Maersk Tankers’ chartering and freight solutions unit, whose remit is the seaborne transportation of energy products for large energy companies and trading houses. He has served in leadership positions with companies such as Morgan Stanley, bp and Castleton Commodities International, including as Managing Director of global tanker freight trading and chartering.

Eva Birgitte Bisgaard will lead Maersk Tankers’ sales and services for shipowners, which are being brought together in the Commercial unit.
