BONN. Kurt Sander stepped down as chairman of the supporting association for ShortSeaShipping Inland Waterway Promotion Centers (SPC) in April. “I’ve happily held this position for six years. Because of the expansion of the company I represent, Robert Kukla, I must step aside from this role for time reasons,” says Sander. The SPC chairman agreed to Wolfgang Nowak’s appointment as acting chairman, with Heiko Loroff as representative. Nowak is Vice President Commercial at HGK Shipping, and Loroff is CEO of Sächsische Binnenhäfen Oberelbe.
