Death of Leschaco CEO Jörg Conrad

BREMEN. In October, Jörg Conrad, long-term CEO and shareholder of the Leschaco Group, died after a short illness. He was 67. Conrad has run the company as managing partner since 1992 and created a leading provider in hazardous goods and tank container logistics. Conrad was responsible for the tank container, air freight, contract logistics, legal and insurance areas as well as terminal operations in Emden until his death. Last year, he transferred the majority of the shares in Leschaco to his children Constantin and Charlotte, thereby heralding a change at shareholder level. Jörg Conrad was also involved in many voluntary activities. These included Honorary Consul of the United Mexican States in the State of Bremen, member of ‘Haus Seefahrt’, member of the advisory board of bremenports as well as Association of Sponsors of the Vocational School for Wholesale, Foreign Trade and Transport.
