Dr. Hansjoerg Rodi (Chairman of the Board, Schenker Deutschland AG)
"I studied Economics, obtained my doctorate and started to work at Stinnes AG in the controlling division in 1996. At that time Stinnes was the parent company of Schenker AG. I stayed in that job for two years and then came to the conclusion that I would actually rather be in a profession which brought me closer to real life. At this juncture I joined the Controlling Division of Schenker AG as a group leader. After one year I took over the specialist controlling division which basically meant that I was responsible for the controlling of all global enterprises at Schenker. I found immense satisfaction in this role. After three years in this position I received an offer to transfer to France and take a role on the financial board of the French country organization. This was one of those phases in life where you ask yourself whether you wish to continue down your current path, in my case finance, or whether you wish to focus on something different. It was a very exciting period for me – I was able to admit that I would like to be in operations, meaning not only to work in the background but to be in the forefront of the action.
I subsequently received the offer to become Chairman of the Board of Schenker Deutschland AG and to take over responsibility for the Region Central Europe, namely Germany, Benelux and Switzerland. I have been in this role for two years now and am very happy in my position."
