MCN: Gerdes succeeds Eisenbeis

NORTHERN GERMANY. The members of the Maritime Cluster Northern Germany (MCN) elected a new board in November. Since then, the new Chairperson has been Knut Gerdes (r). He succeeds Dominik Eisenbeis (l.). Gerdes has been closely associated with seafaring in a variety of functions for 40 years now, and working at the MCN is not new to him either. This is underlined by the fact that he has been an associate member of the association’s board since 2018. The deputy chairperson is Christian Cammin (Julius Marine), and the new treasurer Frank Nicolai (Moore BRL). The board members include: Dr. Iris Hölken (Phi-Stone), Andreas Richter (Department of Economics and Innovation, Hamburg (BWI)), Dr. JensTathoff (biike) and Torsten Westphal(Arkon Shipping). Due to corona-related restrictions the election took place this year by postal vote following the virtual annual general meeting.
