Mr. MAERSK McKinney Möller – perhaps the world’s leading ship owner – passed away last Monday at the age of 98!
MAERSK McKinney Möller (1913 – 2012)
Mr. Möller had it all:
- An incredible ability to understand several shipping segments business cycles at the same time – always being correct with his “in/out” and “long/short” decisions.
- Not being afraid of exercising top-down driven decisions, so that his company always was well positioned in emerging industries
- Attention to relevant details, too
- Hard-working and unselfish – particularly impressive given his large ownership stake in his company.
Mr. Möller set an example for many business leaders – not only from within shipping, but among many other industries, too.
He shall be sorely missed!
