APM Terminals, the world’s leading port and inland services operator, has appointed Henrik L. Pedersen as chief executive officer for the Asia-Pacific region, to be based in Shanghai, China.

Pedersen joined the A.P. Moller-Maersk Group in 1998, where he held various positions within its container shipping business Maersk Line, before working in DAMCO, the group’s logistics arm.

In 2001, he became CFO of DAMCO Greater China area, based in Shanghai, and subsequently took up the position as head of warehousing, distribution and new investment projects, also for DAMCO Greater China.

In January 2008, Pedersen became APM Terminals’ vice president of business development in Latin America, based in Panama. During his four-year tenure in Latin America, the company secured new and sizable investment projects in Callao, Peru; Santos, Brazil; Moin, Costa Rica; and Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico, a company statement said.

Pedersen, a Danish national, comes with a finance degree from Copenhagen Business School in Denmark, and management courses from Columbia Business School in New York City.

Commenting on his new role, Pedersen said, “Our Asia-Pacific Region is a growth market and we are privileged to already operate a number of wholly owned and joint venture first class terminals. My immediate focus will be to drive further service improvements towards our customers and adding further value in the terminals where we participate as joint venture partners.”
