Before Jan-Philipp Rohr joined HSH Nordbank in 2013, he worked for Vereins- und Westbank, Hypovereinsbank and Unicredit. “Jan-Philipp Rohr has extensive experience in shipping and has built up excellent contacts in the industry over many years. He has been very competent in accompanying the changes in the maritime industry in recent years,” said Nicolas Blanchard, HSH Nordbank Management Board member responsible for Sales. “I am convinced that he will continue to develop our shipping business successfully and with the necessary sense of proportion.”
