Shipping line’s announcement says the chief financial officer since 2015 will “take over new projects in Chile.”

   Hapag-Lloyd announced Wednesday that Chief Financial Officer Nicolás Burr will leave the company at the end of February “with the end of his contract to take over new projects in Chile.”
   Burr was appointed as CFO and a member of the executive board in March 2015.
   “His successor will be announced in due course,” the announcement said.
   Michael Behrendt, chairman of Hapag-Lloyd’s supervisory board, thanked Burr for his “commitment.” 
   “His contribution was very valuable for the development of Hapag-Lloyd, particularly with regards to the last two mergers and the initial public offering in 2015,” Behrendt said.
   According to Hapag-Lloyd’s website, Burr was born in Spain but holds Chilean citizenship. He held management positions at a number of companies in Santiago, including serving as CFO of the Chilean liner shipping company CSAV from 2012 to 2015.
