Hellmann expands Executive Board

Osnabrueck, February 03 2020. Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, a full-service logistics provider with worldwide operations and headquarter in Germany, is expanding its Executive Board, thus providing the necessary staff prerequisites for further strategic growth: The position of Chief Operating Officer Air & Sea, has been divided into two separate areas of responsibility, so that the strategic expansion of the two product areas can be pushed ahead in an even more focused manner at Executive Board level in the future. Since January 1, Jan Kleine-Lasthues, as Chief Operating Officer Airfreight, and Marcus Leaver, as Chief Operating Officer Seafreight, have been responsible for the global strategic development of the respective product segments. As members of the Executive Board, both positions report directly to Reiner Heiken, CEO Hellmann Worldwide Logistics.

Jan Kleine-Lasthues has been already with Hellmann for the past eight years, since 2017 as Global Head of Airfreight, and has over 20 years of professional experience in the logistics industry. Marcus Leaver, who has been working in the logistics industry for 39 years, was already employed at Hellmann between 1998 and 2015, and as the Global Head of Seafreight, was last responsible for the product area, which he further substantially developed.

In addition to the Management Board members Reiner Heiken (Chief Executive Officer) and Michael Noth (Chief Financial Officer), the Executive Board now consists of the following members: Matthias Magnor (Chief Operating Officer Road & Rail), Volker Sauerborn (Chief Operating Officer Contract Logistics), Jan Kleine-Lasthues (Chief Operating Officer Airfreight), Marcus Leaver (Chief Operating Officer Seafreight), Jochen Freese (Chief Commercial Officer), Stefan Borggreve (Chief Digital Officer), Sami Awad-Hartmann (Chief Information Officer), Claudio Gerring (Chief HR Officer), and Andreas Lamping (Chief Legal Officer).

"With Marcus Leaver and Jan Kleine-Lasthues we not only brought long-standing colleagues, but also renowned experts in their respective fields onto the Executive Board. With this powerful team, we are now very qualified for the future, so that we will be able to initiate strategic, and above all, sustainable growth from within the Executive Board," says Reiner Heiken, CEO Hellmann Worldwide Logistics.
