Rob Grool has taken over the leadership of ZEABORN Ship Management from Holger Strack, who has been acting as the company’s interim CEO since the beginning of the year.

“With the appointment of Rob Grool, we are very excited to have found an internationally renowned executive for our company’s top management. Rob has an excellent industry network, possesses extensive know-how in all areas of ship management and operations, as well as international expertise and many years of leadership experience. He is renowned for managing clients’ vessels with an owner’s view. With the acquisition of Claus-Peter Offen Tankschiffreederei (CPO Tankers), we have set the course for ZEABORN Ship Management as a full service provider in the ship management sector. Together with Rob, we want to work towards a strategic goal of expanding our managed fleet to more than 250 vessels,” said Jan-Hendrik Többe and Ove Meyer, the ZEABORN Group’s Managing Partners.

“We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Holger Strack, who has been doing a fantastic job as ZEABORN Ship Management’s interim CEO. At the same time, we are very pleased that Holger will now be able to focus on other tasks within the Zech Group.”

In the course of a career spanning 39 years, Grool learned the ropes in the ship management sector from scratch. After graduating as a Master of Science in Maritime and Transport Technology from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, he embarked on an international career as a marine engineer, eventually holding executive positions as managing director and board member of renowned companies across the globe. Over the various stages of his professional life, Grool has worked in many different parts of the world, ranging from Europe and the Middle East to Asia and North America. Along with his professional skills, he has a considerable reputation for his dedicated approach to the customer and a strong focus on teamwork.
