Schenker AG’s supervisory board has appointed Heiner Murmann to its management board, effective May 1. He will be responsible for the Deutsche Bahn subsidiary’s air and ocean freight.
Murmann began working for the German logistics company in 1992, first at Stinnes AG in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany, and in New York. He transferred to Canada in 1996, assuming responsibility for developing the national company there. Three years later, he was appointed CEO of Schenker of Canada. In late 2003, he also became CEO of Schenker, DB Schenker’s national company in the U.S. When BAX Global was acquired and integrated, he took on responsibility for North American operations.
Thomas C. Lieb, who is currently responsible for global air and ocean freight, will be focusing on his position as CEO of Schenker AG in the future.
