Germany’s Zeaborn Ship Management intends to grow its managed fleet to 250 vessels with the support of a newly appointed CEO.
With effect from today, Rob Grool is taking over the leadership of Zeaborn Ship Management from Holger Strack, who has been acting as the company’s interim CEO since the beginning of the year.
“With the appointment of Rob Grool, we are very excited to have found an internationally renowned executive for our company’s top management,” Jan-Hendrik Többe and Ove Meyer, the Zeaborn Group’s Managing Partners, commented.
“Together with Rob, we want to work towards a strategic goal of expanding our managed fleet to more than 250 vessels,” they revealed.
Last month, Zeaborn acquired 100 percent of the shares in Claus-Peter Offen Tankschiffreederei (CPO Tankers), the tanker management subsidiary of Offen Group.
“With the acquisition of Claus-Peter Offen Tankschiffreederei (CPO Tankers), we have set the course for Zeaborn Ship Management as a full service provider in the ship management sector,” Többe and Meyer further said.
Established in 2013, Zeaborn is an integrated shipping company providing services along the entire value-added chain. Zeaborn Shipping is the holding company for the global ship management activities of the group. Under the brand Zeaborn Ship Management, the company offers the full range of ship management activities.
As of April 2019, Zeaborn Ship Management’s fleet comprised 34 bulk carriers, 85 containerships and 13 multipurpose vessels, according to data provided on the company’s website.
