- Nennhaus: “We are also undergoing a transformation as a company. I will actively shape this process together with a highly motivated team both for my area of responsibility and for the entire duisport network.”
The Port of Duisburg’s Executive Board trio is once again complete: Lars Nennhaus has been a new member of the Executive Board of Duisburger Hafen AG since January 1, 2023, with responsibility for Technology and Operations. The qualified industrial engineer succeeds Prof. Thomas Schlipköther, who left the Port Executive Board at the end of 2022 when he reached retirement age.
The ownership and management company of the world’s largest inland port is thus not only starting the year 2023 with a new generation at the top, but is also welcoming an experienced and recognized expert as well as a familiar face back to Duisburg: Lars Nennhaus, who started his career at the Port of Hamburg, already worked for duisport from 2011 to 2018 as Managing Director of Port & Logistics Development. After four years of international work for one of the world’s leading chemical logistics companies, the 47-year-old now completes the Executive Board together with CEO Markus Bangen and Dr. Carsten Hinne.
“In the past eighteen months, the duisport management team has undergone major changes in terms of personnel. With Lars Nennhaus, we have found the last missing piece of the puzzle to shape the change together and lead the Port of Duisburg into a successful future. We are delighted to have him back on board,” explains duisport CEO Markus Bangen.
Lars Nennhaus: “Many current port projects are still very familiar to me. I was involved in initiating some of them myself, and now they are in the implementation phase, which I can now actively shape. We still have a lot of plans, particularly in the areas of infrastructure and digitization, both for the site and for our entire network. I look forward to continuing this challenging task together with a highly motivated team.”
“For the past year, I have experienced the Port of Duisburg as an extremely exciting and challenging place to work; a great sense of optimism can be felt everywhere. I am convinced that together we will drive change and I am extremely looking forward to working with Lars Nennhaus in the Executive Board team,” adds Dr. Carsten Hinne.
Lars Nennhaus is now responsible for Technology and Operations, including Port and Rail Operations, as well as Construction and Facility Management. Dr. Carsten Hinne continues to be the Executive Board member responsible for Network International, Superstructure, Human Resources, and Purchasing. CEO Markus Bangen is responsible for Infrastructure, Finance, Strategy and Digital Transformation, Shareholdings and M&A, and Legal, among others.
