New boss to join Heerema Marine Contractors from sister company

Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven, HMC’s new CEO

29 May 2018

Dutch marine contractor Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) has elected new chief executive officer of the company, which will be joining it from sister company Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG).

In a statement last Friday, HMC said it had appointed Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven as its chief executive officer, starting June 1, 2018.

On the same day, Wijnand Tutuarima will join the Board of Heerema Marine Contractors as chief financial officer (CFO), thereby adding to the HMC one-tier board presently consisting of Pieter Heerema (chairman), Nico Pronk and Saskia Rijtema.

It is worth reminding that HMC’s former CEO, Jan-Pieter Klaver, left the company in June 2017 after an eight-year run as CEO and after over 26 years of working for Heerema. Klaver then in November 2017 took the position of CEO at offshore crane supplier Kenz Figee.

It is also worth mentioning that HMC’s previous CFO, Frans den Houter, resigned last April. Also in April, HMC announced its exit from offshore pipelay activities as a further step in its strategic transition, which resulted in a loss of 350 permanent jobs. SOURCE: OET
