German carrier Hapag-Lloyd’s supervisory board has extended the contract of current CEO, Rolf Habben Jansen, to March 2024.
The contract was set to expire in 2019, and the board unanimously agreed to a five year extension.
Michael Behrendt, chairman of the supervisory board, said: “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.”
Additional members of the board are chief financial officer Nicolás Burr, chief operations officer Anthony J. Firmin and Joachim Schlotfeldt, who is responsible for human resources and global procurement.
