Richard Morgan appointed as the Regional Managing Director for IMEA
In an effort to strengthen its integrator strategy and serve its customers even better, AP Moller–Maersk (Maersk) has integrated two emerging markets – West & Central Asia and Africa to form a new combined Indian Subcontinent-Middle East-Africa (IMEA) region.
This new region will encompass the core geographies of the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East, and Africa, including important markets such as India, Pakistan, UAE, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Kenya, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Nigeria, Senegal, and Ghana, amongst others.
“This will not only allow us to harvest synergies in these markets in a unified way but also serve our customers better through strengthened offerings and resilient solutions,” stressed the newly appointed Richard Morgan, Managing Director, Maersk IMEA region.
The IMEA region has a geographically strategic location, with the natural advantage of creating hubs for both ocean and air transport that will connect the manufacturing and consumer markets across the globe. Through this, the customers’ supply chains will have further access and ease, creating more efficiency with increased reach and scope, a press statement stated.
