Delphine André
Latest round-up of appointments known to WorldCargo News in the shipping, ports and allied sectors

Henrik Renneberg has been Managing Director of Color Line GmbH in Kiel. He replaces Dr Jörg Rudolph, who in turn has joined Royal Caribbean International as head of its Germany business. Renneberg has been with Color Line since 2008 and previously ran its Danish market activities.

Hapag-Lloyd has reshuffled its agency network in the Benelux, France and Germany. Albert Thissen has left his post as Managing Director Benelux to head the organisation in France, based in Paris. Thissen's previous position in Rotterdam has been filled by Tom Demolder, who up to now has run the line's agency business for Turkey and Greece, based in Izmir. In turn, the former director of the French organisation, Holger Oetjen, has been appointed director of the network in Germany, replacing Martin Rolf, who has transferred to head office in Hamburg. The merry-go-round appears to have caught the Rotterdam Ship Agents' Association (VRC), which Thissen chaired, by surprise. A VRC spokeswoman told worldcargonews online that VRC will try to nominate a new Chairman or interim Chairman at the AGM on 27 November. Thissen, meanwhile, has returned to familiar ground, as he ran Hapag-Lloyd France prior to his transfer to Rotterdam in 2002.
