Maersk Broker has completed a management and employee buyout from its long-standing owners, the Mc-Kinney Møller family. The change of ownership is based on a common ambition of the seller and the buyer to preserve the more than 100 years legacy and to secure the company’s position long-term, under a new name with a new ownership structure.

Kristian Mørch, Chairman of the Board of Maersk Broker said:

"The owners and the Board of Directors have for some time explored different ownership structures to ensure the company remains strongly positioned for the future. Acknowledging the unwavering commitment of the management and employees to preserve the legacy and values that have been the foundation for Maersk Broker’s success for generations, we believe they are the right owners to ensure the continued success of the company in decades to come. On behalf of the owners and the Board of Directors, we wish the company Godspeed in their future endeavours.”

The current management and employees of Maersk Broker will undertake the buyout. Going forward the company will operate under its new name MB Shipbrokers. There will be no changes to the operation of the company - business as usual in all aspects.

Maersk Broker was founded in 1914 and has been privately owned by the Mc-Kinney Møller family since then. Today, the company is among the global leaders in the shipbroking industry with offices located in all major shipping hubs and employing close to 250 people.
