Michael Behrendt re-elected as chairman of Hapag-Lloyd
Hapag-Lloyd’s shareholders approved with the required majority all items on the agenda put to the vote at the annual general meeting (AGM) in Hamburg (Germany). The shareholders also indorsed the proposal of the supervisory board to re-elect Michael Behrendt to the supervisory board as a shareholder representative.
After the AGM, Behrendt was also confirmed by his fellow supervisory board members as the board’s chairman. Behrendt has been a member of the supervisory board of Hapag-Lloyd AG since 2014.
“The clearness of the election results is an incentive for me. I would particularly like to thank the shareholders for their faith in me, and I look forward to continuing to work on the supervisory board as well as to enjoying the constructive support of the executive board,” said Behrendt. (mw)
