Safmarine has announced the appointment of Grant Daly as its new CEO, effective 1 February 1 2012. South African-born Daly, currently Safmarine’s Head of MPV (Multi-Purpose Vessel) unit, replaces Tomas Dyrbye. The appointment follows the announcement, in October 2011, of the Maersk Liner Business’ intention to integrate the corporate and regional management activities of Safmarine into those of the Maersk Line, whilst retaining and growing a separate Safmarine brand and operating model. As new CEO, Daly will be based at the new Safmarine headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark where he will report to Hanne B. Sørensen, Maersk Line’s Chief Commercial Officer.
