Stina Bjerg Nielsen is currently the Head of Human Resources for Maersk Oil, part of the A.P. Moller - Maersk Group, one of Denmark's largest companies. Since joining in 2009, Stina has been involved in transforming both the Maersk Oil organization and the strategic direction of the human resources function.
