In the cutthroat business of shipping, where margins are made and lost in a heartbeat, an IT organisation’s role is two-pronged: to enable the business to have seamless transactions with its customers, and to deliver tools to help the business differentiate against the competition. In order to ensure that the organisation successfully delivers on these requirements, it must have the ability to constantly transform itself. But how does a 1,000-strong global organisation form, storm and norm effectively?
CIO of Maersk Line Robin Johnson shares the journey he is taking as he drives transformation in a global IT organisation supporting the world’s largest shipping company.
Robin Johnson is Maersk Line's Chief Information Officer. Prior to joining Maersk Line, Robin was with Dell from 2005-2012 as EMEA CIO and then Global CIO, where he was responsible for global information systems, applications and technology infrastructure. He has also held a number of senior IT positions in the UK and the US for Marks & Spencer, Ernst & Young and Safeway during his 20-year IT career.
Robin graduated from Thames Valley University in 1989 and holds a degree in computer science as well as several management and industry qualifications. He has been a member of several advisory boards to technology companies, most recently in the data warehousing arena.
Robin is married, has two children and lives in Charlottenlund near Copenhagen, Denmark.
