NICOLAJ Noes is the new executive vice-president of DP World’s Oceania business.

Mr Noes succeeds Andrew Adam, who DP World said had “left the organisation to pursue other opportunities”.

The company said Mr Noes would be responsible for overseeing its business in Oceania and “driving its ongoing transformation into an end-to-end supply chain solutions provider”.

Mr Noes was most recently the managing director for towage provider Svitzer Australia.

Prior to his time at Svitzer, Noes spent 30 years with Maersk, holding various leadership positions in Singapore, Australia, China, and Denmark.

 DP World CEO and managing director for Asia Pacific Glen Hilton said: “With his depth of experience in maritime industry, his passion for serving customers, his commitment to develop and inspire his team, Nicolaj is the perfect leader to take DP World forward and accelerate the company’s growth opportunities across Oceania”.

 Mr Noes said he was honoured to join DP World’s talented team in Asia Pacific and lead the Oceania team.

“I have tremendous regard for the company’s rich history and purpose that is to make the world flow and change what’s possible for everyone,” he said.

“I look forward to leveraging my experience to further strengthen DP World’s position across the Oceania supply chain and deliver exceptional value to our customers, partners, and stakeholders.”
