Martine Bonny is leaving her post as director general of the Executive Board of the Port of Dunkirk

Bonny's resignation from the Port of Dunkirk (GPM de Dunkerque) is consequent on her appointment, by France's President, Nicolas Sarkozy, as inspector general of the Department of Sustainable Development, in Paris. In this new appointment, Mme Bonny will report directly to two government ministers, Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet and Thierry Mariani. GPM de Dunkerque has not yet reported on her successor at the port.

Rainer Beaujean, CFO, and Thomas H Hagen, COO, have made use of their respective special termination rights and will leave the Management Board by no later than 30 November 2011. They "reached their decision after the closing of the Terex Industrial Holdings AG voluntary public tender offer on 16 August 2011, which led to a change of control," said a Demag Cranes statement. "Owing to the change in conditions, Mr. Beaujean and Mr. Hagen have decided to seek out new challenges after their nearly five years of successful management of Demag Cranes AG."
