- Executing the development and commercialisation of business ideas into standalone businesses with substantial impact on topline
- Running a structured pipeline of new ideas, providing support and challenge for future new businesses while owning the commercialisation agenda
- Unlocking and re-igniting entrepreneurial potential within running organisations
What do you need to build a brand new, world class company? Many things, of course. But it starts with good ideas, and lots of them.
Sune Stilling is the man tasked with seeking out, listening to and assessing what he describes as a “bombardment” of ideas from both within and outside the company. In the job as Head of Growth since January, he’s visibly excited by the role and the seeds of entrepreneurship he sees in A.P. Moller - Maersk.
“There are lots of ideas in this organisation,” Stilling tells Maersk Post in his office at Esplanaden. “People have this frustration, ‘I have an idea but I don’t know where to go with it’. Maybe they don’t know how to make a business plan, or it’s been shot down before. So we’re going to build a home for ideas.”
Bringing back entrepreneurship
A.P. Moller - Maersk has outlined a new path for profitable growth as it becomes an integrated transport and logistics company. That is built on three pillars: organic, acquisitive and through digital, and the dedicated position of Head of Growth, reporting directly to Group CEO Søren Skou, brings more firepower to the entire growth agenda.
