Deputy Director Commerce – Rotterdam
The significant growth of Den Hartogh Logistics requires an investment in developing the European Commercial team for the Business Units Liquid Logistics and Global Logistics as well as Key Account Management for strategic customers.
To meet the changing demands of the business and ensure the future successful growth ambitions of Den Hartogh Logistics the need has been identified for a strong team leader to join the commercial team as Deputy Director Commerce (DDC).
We are one of the world’s leading Logistics Service Providers (LSPs) when it comes to the safe and reliable transport of bulk liquids and gasses for the Chemical Industry. As a bulk logistics service provider for the chemical, gas, polymer and dry bulk food industry, we combine the best elements to create the optimal formula for each individual situation.
We are a family-owned organisation that was established in 1920 and are headquartered in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Safety and operational excellence are embedded in our culture. Our smart logistics solutions are formed through chemistry – by working and collaborating with our customers, resulting in the right fit for every type of transport: progress and development through chemistry.
Den Hartogh cares and we therefore take care of our colleagues, partners, customers and families. Besides that, we focus on safety, health, environment and quality in order to create the best results.

Together with the Director Commerce, the team of DDC’s will guide the commercial managers and key account managers within Europe and define, implement and execute the commercial strategy.
The DDC will lead by example, act as a role model for the commercial team and deliver high-end consultative solutions to both existing as well as potential customers.
Leading the commercial team through a changing business environment and accelerating the overall performance, requires specific competences with a focus on change management and strategic sales.
Place in the organisation
The DDC reports to the Commercial Director of the Business Unit Liquid Logistics and Global Logistics and is an addition to a team of 3 DDC’s. The current DDC’s are located in the Netherlands, Germany and France.
- At least 10 years’ experience in a B2B environment of which at least 5 years should be in a senior role focussing on selling services – and concepts.
- Experience of managing a team with top and bottom line responsibility, in companies dealing with logistics or liquid bulk, would clearly be an advantage.
