Panalpina announces changes to board of directors

By Rachelle Harry

Panalpina has made changes to its board of directors following its merger with DSV.

The company said that it had decided to downsize its executive board by eliminating the positions of chief commercial officer, chief legal officer, chief information officer, executive vice president, airfreight and executive vice president, ocean freight.

Lucas Kuehner, executive vice president airfreight, has resigned from that position but will take up the role of executive vice president charter network and perishables at DSV Air & Sea.

Karl Weyeneth resigned from his position as chief commercial officer;  but is expected to maintain a senior role at DSV Panalpina.

Christoph Hess has left his position as corporate secretary and chief legal officer; but will continue to serve as group legal for DSV Panalpina and has also been nominated by shareholder Ernst Göhner Foundation to serve as an observer to the DSV Panalpina A/S board of directors for up to 12 months from the settlement.

Ralf Morawietz, chief information officer, and Peder Winther, executive vice president ocean freight, have also left their positions but have not taken up new roles.

The board of directors thanked Morawietz and Winther for their “long and loyal” service to Panalpina – and in recent months for being welcoming and constructive in preparing the business and employees for the upcoming integration with DSV.
