ABP is pleased to announce the appointment of Henrik L. Pedersen as its new Chief Executive.

Pedersen joins ABP from APM Terminals, a key business within A.P. Moller-Maersk, where he has served as Chief Commercial Officer since January 2017. He has 20 years of experience in a wide range of senior leadership roles across A.P. Moller-Maersk businesses worldwide. He will take up his role as Chief Executive in August 2018.

Speaking about his appointment, Pedersen 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, “We are all very much looking forward to welcoming Henrik on board.

“Henrik 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.”

ABP is the UK’s leading port operator, with a unique network of 21 ports across England, Scotland and Wales. Ports include Immingham and Southampton.
