John Klompers, who has been managing the the Central European region, which includes Germany, Austrian and Switzerland, since February this year, has named his new management team. With this strong new team, CEVA is looking optimistically ahead across the Region.
Sven Kirkerup will assume full responsibility for Finance, Helge Süreth for Human Resources, Dr. Michael Müller-Wünsch for Business Development, Andreas Wagner for Contract Logistics and Thomas Kuhn for Freight Management in Germany. They all will report directly to John Klompers. Jens Müller, formerly responsible for Business Development, is leaving the company by mutual consent. “We thank Jens Müller for his commitment over these last few years and wish him all the best for the future,” John Klompers explained.
With a clear allocation of tasks, the management team surrounding John Klompers seeks to develop activities in both business areas of contract logistics and sea and airfreight even further and will offer excellent logistics solutions to the market. “Together we want to rise to the challenges of the future and be at our customers’ side as a reliable and strong partner,” John Klompers said.
John Klompers and his newly formed management team are based at the regional CEVA headquarters in Frankfurt.
