As the new year unfolds, Roman Fürtig assumes the role of Head of Port of Hamburg Marketing's Representative Office Germany East. A seasoned historian and political scientist, he succeeds Stefan Kunze, who is set to retire at the end of April.

Hailing from Mecklenburg, Roman Fürtig will be stationed in Berlin, overseeing the market dynamics in eastern Germany. He becomes the primary contact for members and businesses in this region. Berlin will serve as a strategic hub for Fürtig, allowing him to disseminate comprehensive information about the Port of Hamburg to federal political representatives. "We eagerly anticipate collaborating with Roman Fürtig, confident that his expertise and dedication will significantly contribute to advancing the Port of Hamburg's presence in eastern Germany. Antje Göhler will continue to provide support from our office in Dresden," stated Axel Mattern, a member of the Port of Hamburg Marketing Board.

With two decades of experience, the 49-year-old Fürtig has served as a scientific advisor and office manager for Hamburg's representatives in the German Bundestag. His involvement in the Port of Hamburg and its hinterland transport, coupled with contributions to the Elbe concept's development, showcases his profound understanding of the region. As an honorary chairman of "Die Pfeffersäcke," an association of Hamburgers in Berlin, Fürtig maintains strong ties with the Hanseatic city.

Roman Fürtig took over the management of the HHM Representative Office Germany East at the turn of the year.
