Surprise party held for Pantaenius owner (26 April 2013)

Harald Baum has spent 50 years with the firm

A surprise party was held on Monday for Harald Baum, head of marine insurance provider Pantaenius, to celebrate his 50 years of service with the firm.

Around 350 business partners, clients and employees gathered in the Chilehaus building in Hamburg to congratulate Baum, who was unaware of the party until the last minute.

Baum arrived at the company’s old headquarters with his daughter Anna Baum and was joined by wife Undine and their two sons Daniel and Martin.

During the event there was a concert by the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra and Menso Heyl, former editor-in-chief of the Hamburger Abendblatt and current editor of Yacht magazine, gave a speech.

Pantaenius claims to be the largest yacht insurance provider in Europe with a significant presence worldwide. The company has been insuring yachts for more than 40 years, and has offices in Germany, the UK, Mediterranean, Scandinavia, Austria, Australia and the US. (, 26 April 2013)
