Paul Reed to join Maersk Tankers’ Board of Directors as Vice Chairman

Paul Reed, former chief executive of BP’s Integrated Supply and Trading division, will join Maersk Tankers’ Board of Directors as Vice Chairman.

Reed has worked for 37 years with BP where since 2010 he has led the oil major’s Integrated Supply and Trading division to become one of the industry’s largest oil and gas traders, serving over 12,000 customers across more than 140 countries.

“I am proud to welcome Paul to Maersk Tankers’ Board. He brings a wealth of experience, which will contribute to the development of Maersk Tankers. Paul comes from one of the largest customers of Maersk Tankers and our industry. He has been recognized for embracing new technologies to develop one of the industry’s most successful trading platforms. As a leader, he holds a compelling record of building strong teams, embracing diversity of thought,” says Robert M. Uggla, CEO of A.P. Møller Holding and Chairman of Maersk Tankers’ Board of Directors. 

Reed has held various leadership positions across BP’s global business, especially in commercial and trading functions. He also has board positions at ICE Futures Europe and Marquard and Bahls. 

I am excited to work with such a dynamic team in one of the industry’s leading companies as they embrace the opportunities of new technologies and face the challenges of an evolving market.
