Retirement after more than 30 years

Bremen. Uwe Meisner, Managing Director of THB Transport- und Handelsbe­ratungsgesellschaft, retired at the end of 2020 after more than 30 years in the company’s management. Robert A. Drewes has taken over his duties that focussed on bulk chartering. Drewes has more than 15 years of experience in shipping and chartering, which he gained in particular at the Shanghai, London and Hamburg offices. “A highly regarded personality has retired in Uwe Meisner, who made it possible for the baton to be handed over smoothly,” states Drewes. “Now what is important is to maintain our first-class level off customer service and expand our range of services.”
