Roman Fürtig becomes the new Port of Hamburg Marketing representative for eastern Germany

Following many years of service as PoHM representative, Stefan Kunze enters retirement.

At the turn of the year, Roman Fürtig assumed management of the PoHM representative office for eastern Germany at the Port of Hamburg. The qualified historian and political scientist takes over the role from Stefan Kunze, who will enter well-deserved retirement at the end of April.

Roman Fürtig – a Mecklenburg native – will oversee the eastern Germany market based in Berlin. He serves as contact partner for members and companies in this region. In Berlin, Fürtig also has the opportunity to comprehensively inform representatives of federal politics about the Port of Hamburg. “We are looking forward to working with Roman Fürtig and are sure that, with his professional competence and commitment, he will provide a valuable contribution to promoting the Port of Hamburg in the eastern Germany region.

Antje Göhler will continue to support him in this from our office in Dresden,” says Axel Mattern, Chair of Port of Hamburg Marketing.

Over the last 20 years, 49-year-old Fürtig has worked as scientific adviser and office manager for Hamburg representatives in the German Bundestag. Here, he dealt with the Port of Hamburg and its inland transports – among other areas – for many years. He was also involved in the strategic Elbe concept. He has further close ties to the Hanseatic city as voluntary chairman of the association “Die Pfeffersäcke” (which roughly translates as “The Moneybags”) – for Hamburg natives working in Berlin.
