Yang Ming has appointed the former vice chairman of Evergreen Group, Chih-Chien (Bronson) Hsieh, as its chairman.

Mr Hsieh lost his role at Evergreen in March during a succession battle between the two sons of the late chairman of the Taiwanese company, Chung Yung-fa.
Mr Hsieh has more than 40 years experience in the shipping industry, including 20 years in Europe and China. Yang Ming’s board of directors voted for him unanimously in a board meeting this morning.
