Grimaldi Germany – new management in new year
Grimaldi Germany began the new year with an amended management. The long-standing managing director, Hans-Jürgen Sell, ceased to be responsible for company matters; instead he will concentrate on external relations for the German company and the shipping group, as well as provide advice for the new management.
Dirk Peters, as sole MD, has shouldered all the company affairs, and also taken charge of the ro-ro divisions. The long-serving employee, Dirk Pichlmeier, is to be given sole right of attorney, and his main task will be to lead the container, general cargo/projects sectors. He will be supported by Martin Jöhnk, who will be authorised to represent the company.
Klaus Grupe, who already has power of attorney, will remain responsible for financial affairs, administration, IT and personnel. Finally, Kai Wethmar (photo), as sales director Germany, will shoulder responsibility for sales in Germany’s entire hinterland and Austria, in addition to his task of managing the office in Bremen.
