Hamburg Süd Makes Changes to the Executive Board

Press Release
Tuesday, April 17, 2012

After 18 years on the Executive Board of Hamburg Süd, Joachim A Konrad, Deputy Chairman of the Executive Board, is to retire at the end of April, 2012. The Advisory Board of Hamburg Süd has appointed Peter Frederiksen and Frank Smet to succeed him. They will be joining the Executive Board  May 1, 2012.

The scale and importance of the duties performed by Joachim A Konrad in past years prompted the Advisory Board to split the scope of responsibilities in the future.

Joachim A Konrad’s career in shipping began in 1963 with a traineeship at Norddeutscher Lloyd. Following the amalgamation of Norddeutscher Lloyd and Hamburg-Amerikanische Packetfahrt-Actien-Gesellschaft in 1970 to form Hapag-Lloyd, he held numerous managerial positions there – finally as Regional Director Asia and Regional Director Latin America. In 1994, he made the move to the Executive Board of Hamburg Süd.

Peter Frederiksen has been Commercial Manager of Region Europe for Hamburg Süd since 2008. Prior to this, he held leading positions in liner shipping at A.P. Moller Maersk for more than 25 years – among others in Asia and the USA.

Frank Smet moved to Hamburg Süd in October, 1993, after working for over 16 years in leading positions for the Belgian shipping line Compagnie Maritime Belge (CMB) in South America. He was initially Commercial Manager Region South America West Coast and Region Australia/New Zealand. In the same function from 2004 he was instrumental in establishing the Hamburg Süd liner services and organisation in Asia.
