Henry Woo will take over for Joerg Roehl as head of Hansa Heavy Lift’s Asia-Pacific (APAC) division.

Woo, who will be based at the shipping line’s Asia headquarters in Singapore, has two decades of experience in the supply chain and shipping industry, including senior roles with BBC Chartering, DHL Global Forwarding Management and DB Schenker, where he helped build teams in the region.

“[Woo] has been with us since day one at Hansa Heavy Lift,” said Roger Iliffe, CEO, Hansa Heavy Lift. “We have relied on his industry experience, creativity and leadership to build up our strong position within APAC. In particular, Henry has been the leader of our move into more complex transport and installation (T&I) projects in Asia and led our work with Bumi Armada and BioWave in the past years. We are very excited that he has accepted this new leadership challenge.”

After almost six years with the organization and part of the founding management team, Joerg Roehl decided to move back to Europe and will remain in close contact with the organization whereby he continues to be in an advisory role.

Woo joined Hansa Heavy Lift in 2012 as head of commercial, APAC, and successfully built the commercial network and the team in the APAC region.
