Henrique Schlaepfer has been appointed Managing Director Brazil for Inchcape Shipping Services.

Based in Rio de Janeiro, Henrique will report directly to regional Executive Vice President, Jaime Otero.

Starting his maritime career in 1984, Henrique served as a 2nd Naval Officer in the Brazilian Merchant Navy.

ISS Brazil has been established for over ten years and has an extensive network of offices stretching from Belem in the north to Santos in the South, and Manaus in the Amazon region, thereby covering all of Brazil’s key ports. The country is a key economic and strategic growth area for ISS and Henrique’s skills will encompass leadership of the operations team, as well as management of all other aspects of the business including business development, commercial, finance and human resources, all ably supported by Brazilian General Manager Capt. Oscar Sotelo.

EVP, Jaime Otero, said: “ISS Brazil is crucial to our strategic development in the region where we currently provide, and are looking to expand upon our innovative range of marine, cargo and supply chain solutions. ISS works in close partnership with our customers helping them to reduce cost, increase efficiency and minimise risk and Henrique’s extensive experience and professional network will enable us to strengthen our support to our customers even further.”
