Maximilian Rothkopf appointed to Executive Board of Hapag-Lloyd
The Supervisory Board of Hapag-Lloyd AG has appointed Maximilian Rothkopf (38) to its Executive Board effective 1 May 2019. On 1 July, he will become the new Chief Operating Officer (COO), replacing Anthony J. Firmin (65), who will retire on 30 June. Maximilian Rothkopf, who holds a master's degree as well as a doctorate in business administration, has been a Partner since 2014 at McKinsey & Company, where he has been a member of the global Travel, Transport and Logistics (TTL) leadership team. He started his career in 2005 at the management consulting firm, where he has particularly provided advice to larger liner shipping companies, airlines and numerous other globally operating logistics companies. In his new role as the COO of Hapag-Lloyd, he will assume operational responsibility for the global shipping business and advance the implementation of the company's "Strategy 2023", among other things.
"With Maximilian Rothkopf, we are bringing on board a proven and internationally experienced logistics expert who is familiar with Hapag-Lloyd and has already given the company much strategic advice during his time as a consultant in the past three years. We are very much looking forward to working with him", said Michael Behrendt, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Hapag-Lloyd AG. "At the same time, we would like to sincerely thank Anthony J. Firmin for his enormous commitment.

The other members of the Executive Board of Hapag-Lloyd AG are Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Rolf Habben Jansen, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Nicolás Burr and Chief Personnel and Global Procurement Officer (CPO) Joachim Schlotfeldt.
