John Hinrichsen has been appointed as managing partner of One World Sale & Purchase, bringing 20-plus years of experience in the market with him.  

Having trained in Hamburg and the City of London, he returned to his native city in the late 1990s to take the helm of the family shipbroking firm Hinrichsen & Co.  

In the ensuing years, Hinrichsen has been managing director of several Hamburg based shipbroking companies, most recently United Maritime Brokers. He has facilitated many second-hand and newbuilding sales of container, bulker and tanker units as well as of niche types such as reefer, offshore and multipurpose. He is also an experienced demolition broker.  

“This is really an exciting step for me,” said Hinrichsen. “With the establishment of One World Sale & Purchase we aim to offer a tailored high capability broking service together with analysis, market reports and valuations, and I’m looking forward to welcoming clients old and new across the world.”
