Donya-Florence Amer to be Chief Information Officer at Hapag-Lloyd

During its meeting today, the Supervisory Board of Hapag-Lloyd AG appointed Donya-Florence Amer to the Executive Board. On 1 February 2022, she will join the company as Chief Information Officer (CIO).

Amer, 49, started her professional career in 1999 at IBM, where she held various management positions. She has played leadership roles at Bosch since 2017, initially as Executive Vice President and as a member of the CIO Management Board. Since 2020, she has been the CEO of Bosch Climate Solutions, of which she was a co-founder.

"By bringing Donya-Florence Amer on board, we have been able to secure for ourselves a highly qualified expert in the field of information technology and digital business modelling," says Michael Behrendt, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Hapag-Lloyd AG. "The Supervisory Board is firmly convinced that, with her extensive experience, she will provide us with invaluable support in the ongoing implementation of our digitisation strategy."

A new IT portfolio on the Executive Board will be established. Thus, as CIO, Amer will be the fifth member of the Executive Board - alongside CEO Rolf Habben Jansen, CFO Mark Frese, COO Dr Maximilian Rothkopf and CPO Joachim Schlotfeldt.

In addition, Amer will be the first woman to serve on the company's Executive Board in its then-175-year history.
