Johann von Rantzau has been selected as this year's Robin Travis Scholar following final interviews of candidates in Hamburg, Germany. 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 30th September 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 programme of placements reflecting his particular business interests.

Johann presently 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 said:  “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.”

Hugo Wynn-Williams, Chairman of Thomas Miller, said: “We look forward to welcoming Johann. He starts his programme with our Thomas Miller Insight into Transport Law and Insurance Course on 1st October. We believe the scholarship represents a unique opportunity for young German transport professionals to work in the London market."
