Mammoet CCO Steps Down Following Successful Integration with ALE

Mammoet have announced that Chief Commercial Officer Michael Birch has decided to step down from his position as of Jan 8, 2021. Darren Adams has taken over responsibility for Mammoet’s commercial functions.

In their press release they state…

A year has now passed since the day Mammoet and ALE joined forces to create the world’s leading provider of engineered heavy lifting. The integration of the two former companies has now been completed, and we are now moving into the next phase of Mammoet’s development.

We have continuously looked to combine the best of both companies as we have built the new Mammoet organization. Across all levels of the organization, we have created a diverse mix of people from both companies, in order to continue to serve our customers in the best way.

With the integration well established, Chief Commercial Officer Michael Birch has decided to step down from his position as of Jan 8, 2021.

Michael joined us from ALE and committed himself to supporting Mammoet in the first year of integration as CCO in the EBM. Michael’s experience was instrumental during the integration process, allowing Mammoet to further strengthen its leading position in the world of heavy lifting and transport.

His insight has positioned the business to maintain long-term relationships with all of its customers and partners, to serve all projects, from single-day jobs to highly complex, multi-year megaprojects.

We are grateful for Michael’s contributions and are happy to announce that he will remain available to Mammoet as a Commercial Advisor to the Board for the next three to six months.

Darren Adams, Advisor to the Board, will take on the responsibilities for the global commercial functions of Sales, Business Development and Marketing & Communication, reporting to Jan Kleijn, Chief Operating Officer.

Darren has nearly thirty years of experience in the heavy lifting and transport industry and worked both for Mammoet and ALE in senior commercial roles. His significant expertise and substantial commercial acumen will position the business strongly over the coming years, to further develop Mammoet’s approach in line with Mammoet’s business strategy.

“On behalf of the EBM I would like to thank Michael for his contributions over the last year. His valuable perspective has helped the integration to run smoothly and his market insight has supported our further commercial development. We wish him all the best for the future”, said Paul van Gelder.

Michael Birch added “Following the successful integration process, I have taken the decision to step down from Mammoet’s EBM. The integration has gone as smoothly as we could have imagined. The business has dealt incredibly well with the pandemic over the past twelve months and is now in a strong position for the future. Mammoet is a great place to work and I would like to wish all my Mammoet colleagues the very best for the future.”

The integration created the world’s leading company of its type, with significantly enhanced scalability, innovation and mobilization capabilities. This enhanced Mammoet’s ability to deliver to its customers in the safest, most efficient and cost-effective way possible, from single day local jobs to multi-year megaprojects.
