New MDs for Hansa Heavy Lift

Steve Dawson and Alex Karakassis have been appointed Managing Directors of Hansa Heavy Lift GmbH, taking over from outgoing Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Roger Iliffe, with immediate effect.

Dawson will oversee Hansa Heavy Lift’s engineering, technical, and operational activities, and Karakassis, who remains Chief Financial Officer (CFO), will oversee the company’s commercial and financial activities. Both have been with Hansa Heavy Lift since its inception in 2011.

“HANSA HEAVY LIFT would like to thank Mr Iliffe for his efforts in developing the company into a best-in-class super heavy lift specialist and we wish him all the best for his new endeavours,” said Alex Karakassis, CFO and Managing Director, Hansa Heavy Lift.

 “We firmly believe that Hansa Heavy Lift’s unique pool of engineering and technical resources will allow us to further strengthen our performance in our core super heavy lift and transport and installation (T&I) markets.”
