Oksana Janssen steps down as Chief Operating Officer Eurasia & Far East at VTG GmbH

Oksana Janssen, Chief Operating Officer Eurasia & Far East, has stepped down from office and is leaving VTG GmbH of her own accord on May 31, 2023.

“We deeply regret Oksana Janssen’s departure and would, on behalf of the entire workforce, like to express our heartfelt gratitude for her successful efforts and tremendous commitment to VTG over the past ten years,” says Sven Wellbrock, Chief Operating Officer Europe & Chief Safety Officer at VTG GmbH. 

Oksana Janssen had been with VTG since 2013. Initially as Head of the VTG Rail Russia Business Unit and later as Chief Operating Officer Eurasia & Far East, she was instrumental in very successfully driving the growth of the company’s Russian wagon leasing business and expanding the international activities of VTG Project Logistics across the markets of Germany, Russia, the Baltic region, China, Japan and along the Silk Road. 

The geopolitical changes brought about by the war in Ukraine and its various consequences also affect VTG. Since key operating units have been sold or dissolved, the position of COO Eurasia & Far East will no longer be filled. “Oksana Janssen has served VTG with exceptional dedication in turbulent times,” adds Mark Stevenson, Chief Financial Officer at VTG GmbH. “We want to express our sincere thanks for the important part she has played and the trust and collaboration we have enjoyed. We wish her all the very best for her future career.”
