In a surprise move, the Supervisory Board of Slovenia’s port operator Luka Koper has replaced Robert Cesar as President and replaced him with Gregor Veselko, former Executive Director for intercontinental services at Slovenian freight forwarder Intereuropa. Luka Koper’s Vice President Aldo Babic has also been relieved of his post.
Luka Koper would not comment on the reasons for the decision other than to say “that both were relieved because of fault reasons”. No decision has yet been made on a replacement for the role of vice president.
The Management Board is now composed of President Gregor Veselko, member Marjan Babic, and member Boris Marzi.
Christian Mardrus, former Senior Vice President, Information Systems for Renault, has taken a new position as Managing Director of Global Logistics for the Renault Nissan Alliance. He will lead the logistics department and the coordination of global supply chain activities for the Alliance.
Renault has not officially confirmed the replacement for his previous role yet.
Mardrus joined Renault in 1999 and was appointed to his previous role in July 2006. On September 1, 2008, he was appointed to Renault’s Management Committee.
DB Schenker Logistics’ French division has appointed Philippe de Crécy as chairman of the management board. De Crécy has been on the management board with responsibility for air and ocean freight since 2005.
Prior to that he headed air freight activities since joining the company in 2000.
He succeeds Joël Moebel, who has left the company.
The move follows the appointment of Edmund Schlummer to the Management Board of DB Schenker Rail Deutschland giving him responsibility for Deutsche Bahn rail freight transportation in DB Schenker Rail’s largest business segment. The DB Schenker Rail Business Unit includes the national companies in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland and Italy.
