Maersk Broker Bulk Chartering

Maersk Broker, a prominent ship brokerage based in Copenhagen and established in 1914, has recently undergone a significant transformation through a management and employee buyout, separating from its long-time owners, the Mc-Kinney Møller family. Following this buyout, the company will now operate under a new identity, MB Shipbrokers. In a statement shared on social media, Maersk Broker emphasized that this change in ownership aims to honor the company’s century-old legacy and ensure its long-term position in the industry. This move also puts to rest previous speculations about a potential takeover by Clarksons. Maersk Broker assures that its operations will continue as usual, with no expected changes in its day-to-day business activities. Kristian Mørch, the chairman of Maersk Broker, commented on the buyout, noting that the owners and board of directors have been considering various ownership structures to keep the company robust for the future. Recognizing the dedication of the management and employees to uphold the legacy and values that have been key to Maersk Broker’s success over generations, Mørch expressed confidence that this new ownership is well-suited to guide the company toward continued success in the coming decades. Since its inception, Maersk Broker has been privately owned by the Mc-Kinney Møller family.
