Maersk appoints Silvia Ding as new managing director for greater China

A.P. Müller-Maersk today announced the appointment of Ms. Silvia Ding, currently Chief Transformation Officer, as the new President of Greater China, effective 1 January 2024.

Ms. Silvia Ding will succeed Ms. Wu Bingqing in this position. Ms. Wu Bingqing has been President of Maersk Greater China since 2019, and Maersk said it will announce her new position in the near future.

It is reported that Ms. Silvia Ding joined Maersk in 1999 and held various senior management positions in China and Southeast Asia, and was transferred to the Copenhagen headquarter in 2017, where she was the Global Head of Marine Products of Maersk Line.

A.P. Müller-Maersk is rapidly transforming itself based on the company’s strategy,” said Diller Bai, President of Maersk Asia Pacific. While we have currently made great progress, the transformation is not yet complete. Even in the current market environment, we see significant opportunities for growth in providing end-to-end logistics solutions to our customers. China has always been the company’s largest market, and Ms. Ding has been with Maersk Greater China for more than 15 years and has led Maersk’s global marine product and network team for more than four years. As the company’s Chief Transformation Officer, Ms. Ding understands and has been involved in the design of the company’s integrated shipping and logistics strategy, and is passionate about the Greater China market and the potential of Chinese customers in global trade. In a market as critical to us as Greater China, I think she is the very right leader to put the company’s strategy into action.”

Since the first Maersk Line ship docked in Shanghai in March 1924, A.P. Müller & Maersk has been serving China’s foreign trade for nearly 100 years. Today, Maersk has 80 offices and more than 17,000 employees in China, and its business scope has expanded from liner shipping to logistics, terminals, procurement, warehousing and distribution, and many other areas.
