Hapag-Lloyd has extended the contract of CEO Rolf Habben Jansen for a further five years until March 31, 2024.
Jensen has been CEO of the company since July 2014. At the end of March, Jansen took on a wider role at Hapag-Lloyd by taking over the sales area of the company as part of the top management reshuffle.
“With Rolf Habben Jansen at the head, Hapag-Lloyd has further improved its position as a leading global liner shipping company in a challenging market environment and as an active driver of industry consolidation. The extension of his contract ensures continuity in the corporate management. We have thereby created the best conditions for the continuation of the successful course of Hapag-Lloyd. I am very much looking forward to our further cooperation,” said Michael Behrendt, chairman of the supervisory board of Hapag-Lloyd.
The recent management reshuffle follows Hapag-Lloyd completing a merger with United Arab Shipping Company in May 2017. The two companies continue to operate independently as they work to integrate their internal systems and processes.
