New CEO and deputy CEO at CMP

Barbara Scheel Agersnap has been appointed new CEO of Copenhagen Malmö Port AB, CMP. Jonas Arkestad will simultaneously become deputy CEO.

CMP’s board of directors has decided to appoint Barbara Scheel Agersnap as new CEO of CMP. Barbara has been deputy CEO of CMP since June 2015. The company’s CFO, Jonas Arkestad, will take over the role of deputy CEO and retain his post as CFO.

“We are delighted that Barbara has accepted the role of CEO at CMP. Choosing Barbara gives us a person who has both strategic and operational expertise. Barbara knows the industry and is simultaneously capable of new thinking. In a world that is undergoing such major changes, this is important to ensure that the company stays abreast of developments,” states CMP’s Chairman Mads Lebech.

“I am gratified to have the confidence of the board of directors. After my two years as deputy CEO, it feels both satisfying and challenging to step into the role of CEO. We have a fantastic business and a good strategic location in the Baltic region with great potential. I am looking forward to my new assignment and to working together with the organisation to develop CMP as a leading port in the future too,” says Barbara Scheel Agersnap, CEO of Copenhagen Malmö Port AB.

The changes within CMP will take immediate effect.
