The Founder & Owner

Still as a young boy Mr. Bauer has developed a close predilection for the maritime environment. The maritime flair of the Hansestadt Hamburg has sincerely sharpened this interest and caused that Mr. Bauer became an enthusiastic sailor. From now on barely any holiday passed without signing on for a deck-hand job on an oceangoing Yacht. Mr. Bauer enjoyed turns across the Mediterranean; he sailed around Australia and finally crossed the Atlantic on a Jongert 22s.

Born into a family of entrepreneurs he had also been predestined for a career in business management. As he wished to combine personal interests with his occupational future he decided to start his career with an apprenticeship in shipping business at the liner shipping giant Hapag-Lloyd in Hamburg.

Soon Mr. Bauer realized that this can only be a starting point. He felt challenged to move on with research and education in order to understand the whole context of the business. Consequently he studied Maritime Economics in Elsfleth, Germany and graduated as Certified Economical Engineer in Shipping and Portmanagement in 2003. These studies included a semester abroad which Mr. Bauer concluded at the Manukau Institute of Technology in Auckland, New Zealand.

Finally his thirst for intelligence took him to the University of Plymouth (GB), where he passed a Master degree in International Shipping with distinction. His graduation project has been awarded with the Davies Johnson & Co. prize for the best dissertation in maritime studies in 2004.

Mr. Bauer has already gained considerable practical experience within many occupational stations of his career. He has achieved and maintained founded knowledge of maritime business and particularly in Marine Insurance, Marine Operations, Crewing and Ship Finance.

At his last contractual occupation Mr. Bauer had been leading the Marine Insurance Department of a well established shipmanagement company in Hamburg.
