Hans-Christian Mordhorst who, for the past 7 years, held the position of Managing Director of DA-Desk FZ-LLC, has been appointed Marcura Group’s Chief Commercial Officer and Non-Executive Chairman of DA-Desk.
For the past 20 years Hans-Christian held senior positions in the global shipping industry.
Group CEO, Jens Lorens Poulsen said, “Marcura has set very ambitious targets to deliver value to its customers in 2021 and beyond, anchored by its three main business units: DA-Desk, PortLog and MarTrust. Our value propositions need to evolve and become even more digital, more attuned to risk & compliance management, more integrated and even more focused on customer success. With his appointment, Hans-Christian will focus entirely on driving this value delivery across the Group together with the commercial and operational leadership in each of these business units.”
Hans-Christian said: “It has been extremely gratifying to be part of the most successful and transformational years of DA-Desk’s 20-year history. I am both excited and humbled to now get the opportunity to focus, with customers and our organization, on value delivery across all our Group companies.”
Succeeding Hans-Christian as Managing Director will be Dionysis Tzelepis, previously the DA-Desk Director of Financial Services. Prior to his role within DA-Desk, Dionysis headed up the Treasury & Corporate Finance Department for a major ship owner.
Dionysis has 20 years’ experience in shipping and finance. Together with the senior management team of DA-Desk, Dionysis will focus on adding value to customers through digitalisation, against the backdrop of a heightening global regulatory compliance environment in the maritime industry.
