Frank Bergert succeeds Tobias Braun as Thomas Miller Hamburg chief exec

Insurance, professional and investment services provider Thomas Miller has appointed Frank Bergert as Chief Executive of Thomas Miller Hamburg, with immediate effect.

Bergert succeeds Tobias Braun, who has left the business after eight years to pursue new endeavours in the industry.

Bergert has been involved with the business since it acquired Zeller Associates in October 2018 in a consultative role for Silverton Maritime Solutions GmbH, and has been on the Board of Thomas Miller Insurance (Germany) since the deal completion.

He had previously served as Chief Financial Officer at Reederei ER Schiffahrt GmbH and CPO Holding GmbH.

Braun has decided to leave the company after more than eight years working for both Hanseatic, prior to its acquisition by Thomas Miller, and subsequently as Managing Director for all Thomas Miller entities in Hamburg.

Thomas Miller chairman Hugo Wynn-Williams said that “Frank brings extensive expertise and a wealth of commercial, financial and leadership experience to our company and we believe he is a very safe pair of hands to take over the reins to lead Thomas Miller’s operations in Germany. We are grateful to Tobias for his significant contribution, he was instrumental in giving Thomas Miller the opportunity to establish a presence in Hamburg when the Zeller Group of companies were acquired in 2018. We wish him well in his future endeavours.”
