Klaus-Dieter Peters, Chairman of HHLA’s Executive Board, Will Not Renew His Contract after Its Expiration at the End of 2016

10 Dec 2015 11:28 Personnel matters

The Chairman of Hamburger Hafen und Logistik Aktiengesellschaft’s Executive Board, Klaus-Dieter Peters, today informed the company’s Supervisory Board that he will not be at the company’s disposal after the expiration of his contract as of 31 December 2016.
Klaus-Dieter Peters has been at the head of HHLA since 1 April 2003 and played an essential part in both the success of the company and its effective diversification policy in recent years – including in particular the establishment and expansion of HHLA’s own hinterland and rail operations in Central and Eastern Europe.
In 2007, under the leadership of Mr. Peters, the company was successfully listed at the stock exchange, on which approximately one third of the company’s shares are traded today.
It is with much regret that the Supervisory Board accepts Mr. Peters’ decision and in today’s meeting the Board has begun taking the necessary steps to find a successor as Chairman of HHLA’s Executive Board from 2017.
