When Olaf Groeger, Managing Director of CCS, and his small team commenced operations in Hamburg in January 2015, they felt and acted like a start-up, despite the connection to 30+ years of cruise experience from CSM. Two years later they are continuing to keep the “early day spirit” alive. Considering CCS’s rapid growth, this is an important task. The combined headcount of the two offices in Hamburg and Limassol will be 42 by February 2017. Within its first two years, CCS has won three additional clients and been assigned six more vessels.

“Firstly our remuneration is a management fee only”, explains Olaf Groeger. “It may be a bit higher than what our competitors ask for but is all-inclusive”.
