WCL prepares the future

Since 1999 WCL has been a reliable partner for the Global Logistics Service Provider (GLSP) industry. Products include Global Recruitment and Executive Search as well as M&A, Consulting and NVOCC Implementation Projects.

The founder, Hans J. Willam, recently celebrated his 65th birthday. He does not intend to retire but, it was a good reason to think about the future of WCL. Jointly with the other shareholders, a decision was made to prepare WCL for the future. This included a change of the WCL Management as well as winning profound members for the WCL Advisory Board:

Andreas Boedeker, former Head of Global Oceanfreight at DHL Global Forwarding, as well as Claude Lebel, former Executive of CMA-CGM and OOCL, will join the WCL Advisory Board with immediate effect in order to strengthen the WCL Advisory Board. Guenter Kuhberg will continue his task as member of the WCL Advisory Board. Hans J. Willam has been the Chairman since 2017 and will continue to be the Chairman of the Advisory Board.

Martin Sieg (recently a member of the Advisory Board and a Partner) has again joined the WCL Management Team, and has been appointed as Managing Director on Feb 1, 2021, in addition to Matthias Griesmayr as joint MD’s of WCL – Worldwide Consultants GmbH.

Hans J. Willam is very happy about the strengthening of the Management Team, including the fact that the younger generation is now in charge. Willam will now also focus on expanding the WCL business in the Region Americas.

(WCL was founded by Hans J. Willam in 1999 and has approx.. 30 Global Representative Offices serving the Global Logistics Service Provider industry.)
