On 1 June 2016, Andreas Wellbrock will be joining WAB e.V. as its new managing director. He will be taking over from Urs Wahl, who was appointed as interim manager of the industry network in the autumn when longtime managing director Ronny Meyer stepped down to join Bremen's environmental department.

Andreas Wellbrock is a graduate industrial engineer and previously worked for the BLG Logistics Group in Bremen for more than sixteen years. Among other things, he was in charge of expanding the logistics segment for offshore wind energy at that company. He was also appointed to the board of directors in 2013 and was responsible for BLG's contract logistics.

"WAB's new managing director, Mr Wellbrock, is highly qualified and well-established in the industry. We are very happy that he decided to join us and look forward to our collaboration, which will begin next year," WAB's chairman of the board Klaus Meier said. "Mr Wellbrock is the ideal person to take over from Ronny Meyer at our network," he added.

"As the new managing director of WAB, my goal is to work as closely as possible with member companies and also to prepare the network for future challenges," Andreas Wellbrock said. The development of WAB into a European 'cluster of excellence' will also be systematically continued. However, the central focus will be to strengthen WAB as a network for members, Wellbrock emphasised.
