In a press release, the port said it was not only starting the year 2023 with a new generation at the top, but was also welcoming an experienced and recognized expert who is a familiar face.

As duisport writes, Lars Nennhaus started his career at the Port of Hamburg before going to work for duisport from 2011 to 2018 as Managing Director of Port & Logistics Development.

After four years of working in the chemical logistics sector, the 47-year-old has now returned duisport on the Executive Board together with CEO Markus Bangen and Dr. Carsten Hinne.

“In the past eighteen months, the duisport management team has undergone major changes in terms of personnel. With Lars Nennhaus, we have found the last missing piece of the puzzle to shape the change together and lead the Port of Duisburg into a successful future. We are delighted to have him back on board,” said duisport CEO Markus Bangen, in a statement.

Lars Nennhaus himself had the following to say about his return to the inland port:

“Many current port projects are still very familiar to me. I was involved in initiating some of them myself, and now they are in the implementation phase, which I can now actively shape. We still have a lot of plans, particularly in the areas of infrastructure and digitization, both for the site and for our entire network. I look forward to continuing this challenging task together with a highly motivated team.”

“For the past year, I have experienced the Port of Duisburg as an extremely exciting and challenging place to work; a great sense of optimism can be felt everywhere. I am convinced that together we will drive change and I am extremely looking forward to working with Lars Nennhaus in the Executive Board team,” adds Dr. Carsten Hinne.

According to duisport, Lars Nennhaus is now responsible for Technology and Operations, including Port and Rail Operations, as well as Construction and Facility Management.

The company added that Dr. Carsten Hinne remains Executive Board member. He is responsible for Network International, Superstructure, Human Resources, and Purchasing.

CEO Markus Bangen is in charge of Infrastructure, Finance, Strategy and Digital Transformation, Shareholdings and M&A, and Legal issues among other things.
