Johann von Rantzau has been selected as this year's Robin Travis Scholar.

Johann von Rantzau has been selected as this year's Robin Travis Scholar following final interviews of candidates in Hamburg. The scholarship provides a three-month paid internship with transport liability specialist Thomas Miller for executives employed in the shipping, transport or marine insurance sectors in Germany.

From September 30, 2013, Johann will be attached to Thomas Miller’s London head office where the businesses managed include the UK P&I Club, the TT Club and ITIC. He will enjoy a tailored program of placements reflecting his particular business interests.

Johann works in the placing department of Doehle Assekuranzkontor, a marine insurance brokerage in Hamburg. He assists with renewal processes, deals with hull and machinery (H&M), equipment, loss of hire and war risk placings.

He told us, “The legal environment is becoming more challenging and I see P&I becoming an increasingly relevant part of the business for shipowning companies.

“Increasing my knowledge of all aspects of P&I insurance will be indispensable for my future in the business of international shipping. The Robin Travis Scholarship is an excellent opportunity to further this interest and learn more.”

Johann feels the Robin Travis Scholarship will present a perfect chance to acquire and extend a strong network of acquaintances in the maritime services sector.

Hugo Wynn-Williams, Chairman of Thomas Miller, said, “We look forward to welcoming Johann. He starts his program with our Thomas Miller Insight into Transport Law and Insurance Course on October 1. We believe the scholarship represents a unique opportunity for young German transport professionals to work in the London market. Many of the 14 previous scholars have gone on to achieve senior positions in the German transport industry.”

Thomas Miller established the Robin Travis Scholarship program in 1992 in memory of Robin Travis, a former Director of Thomas Miller who died suddenly in 1991. He had a long association with the German members of the transport clubs managed by Thomas Miller and with correspondents and brokers.

The Robin Travis scholarship provides a three-month internship for an executive working in Germany, seeking career progression and greater understanding of the shipping, transport or insurance sector. The scholar gains both practical and theoretical knowledge from time in the Thomas Miller office and with businesses related to his regular work. A bursary of €7,000 is provided.
