Generation change at Duisport
Upon recommendation of the executive committee, the supervisory board of Duisburger Hafen unanimously elected Markus Bangen (front right) as new chief executive officer and Carsten Hinne (front left) as new member of the executive board.
Supervisory board chairman Hendrik Schulte: "This is a good day for the Port of Duisburg. With Bangen, we have been able to gain an excellent expert on the Port of Duisburg as our new CEO."
Hinne joins Europe's largest inland port from Deutsche Bahn, where he was most recently SVP of DB Cargo AG, responsible for the realignment and organisation of the newly created business unit along the Eurasian corridor.
Bangen joined the company in 2000 and moved to the executive board in 2008 (legal and human resources, purchasing, industrial logistics, superstructure and terminals).
On 1 December 2021, he will succeed Erich Staake, who has shaped and modernided Duisport over the past two decades but was not mentioned in Schulte's statement. (ah)
