Transport and logistics service provider HOYER Group has announced Hans-Christian Sievers, formerly Chairman of the Executive Board of HELM AG, as a new member of its Advisory Board.

In addition to the new appointment, the Hamburg-based company also announced that Dr. Rolf Stomberg, Deputy Chairman of the Advisory Board, has left his role after more than 20 years of successful collaboration.

Sievers will strengthen the HOYER Group’s Advisory Board with his expertise from the chemical sector. He started his career at HELM AG and rose from Product Manager to Managing Director responsible for Mexico, before being appointed as a member of the Executive Board of HELM AG, Hamburg, in 2001.

He then took over as Chairman of the Executive Board of HELM AG in 2012, a position he held until March 2020.

Commenting on the appointment, Thomas Hoyer, Chairman of the HOYER Group’s Advisory Board, said, “We look forward to important stimuli. We are delighted that we are able to obtain Hans-Christian Sievers four our company.”

The Advisory Board acts as an independent adviser and review body. As a neutral authority, it reflects the company’s strategy, its financial and investment planning and its personnel policy, acts as a think-tank and discusses strategies, opportunities and risks with the Executive Board.

Acting as an independent control medium, a total of six Advisory Board members advise the owner family and the Executive Board.
