Hapag-Lloyd CEO Michael Behrendt will not leave the company completely when he steps down this summer, handing over the job to former Damco CEO Rolf Habben-Jansen.
Instead, Michael Behrendt will become Chairman on the carrier's Board of Directors, says the company in a press release. Hapag-Lloyd, which recently settled a merger with Chilean CSAV and is set to become the world's 4th largest container carrier, has thus completed its management reshuffle.
