Alexander Jagd Petersen

Consultant, M.Sc.

A highly promising management engineer with a keen eye and sharp mind, Alexander joined Langebæk in the fall of 2017. That he should find his way here is perhaps not all that surprising given his background. Born in Århus into a family of engineers, he developed a lasting interest in problem-solving and innovation early on, and was undoubtedly influenced by the material handling systems and solutions he became exposed to at home. Inevitably, then, he went on to study engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) where he excelled, completing both a Batchelors in Design & Innovation and a Masters in Engineering Management with top marks, and did thesis work developing a Supply Chain Risk Management simulation tool for DONG Energy Wind Power.

Upon graduating, Alexander went to work for Maersk, accepting a position in Group Procurement as Assistant Category Manager of Drydocking. This meant returning to Asia, where he interned twice (Singapore and China, respectively) during his university years, and where he had spent four years during his youth (Hong Kong). After two successful years in Shanghai, he was offered a position as Business Analyst at the Maersk Line headquarters in Copenhagen, where he would go on to work on systems to support the digital transformation of the company.
