Dubai-based Marcura Group has confirmed that Jesper Kjaedegaard has joined the company as Senior Adviser. A highly respected shipping personality, Jesper currently serves as Partner of Mercator International and has previously been a CEO of The Maersk Company, Chairman of Maritime UK and President of the UK Chamber of Shipping.
Marcura introduced its first cloud-based digital solution, DA-Desk, in 2001. The group now serves more than 350 shipping companies, trading houses, mining companies and oil majors, who optimise their voyages, using Marcura’s cloud platforms and services.
Jesper says, “I have spent decades managing maritime hardware with a focus on ships and ports; however, over the past few years, I have taken an increasing interest in using technology to improve all aspects of shipping and port management. Marcura’s strong presence, independence and scale in the industry will allow me to exploit this interest further.”
