He later served Hapag Lloyd AG as Senior Vice President and Director Operations for Region South, one of the company’s four global divisions, with full responsibility for operations in the Med, Middle East and Africa.
A licensed ship’s agent, Mr. Guerrini has also run a family-owned agency business and participated in various terminal and logistics companies as shareholder and director. He has served as Secretary General of the Council of Intermodal Shipping Consultants (C.I.S.Co) since 2004 and has been on the Board of Assiterminal since 2010.
Stepping down after 12 years as Chairman, Mr. Michel Hennemand will remain on the Board as Vice Chairman. Bertrand Geoffray, Secretary General of the BIC, was joined by his colleagues and the entire Board in expressing profound thanks to Mr. Hennemand for his many years of support and dedication to the BIC. He then welcomed Mr. Guerrini to the role, stating “the BIC is blessed to have active board members who generously volunteer their time and expertise to the organization. We couldn’t be more pleased that Giordano has accepted to continue his support of the BIC, now as Chairman of the Board.”
