IHC Merwede Appoints New CEO

IHC Merwede has appointed Bram Roelse as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) with immediate effect as of 1 April 2014.

He has taken over this leading role within the company from predecessor Dirk Philips who stepped back in November 2013.

Mr Roelse (56) has worked at IHC Merwede for the past 13 years. He was originally appointed as the Managing Director of the company’s business unit IHC Systems. At the end of 2004, he moved to the company’s shipyard at Kinderdijk, where he became Director of the Dredging division.

As a member of IHC Merwede’s Board of Management since 2002, Mr Roelse began work in his previous post as Chief Operating Officer (COO) in September 2013, when he also became a member of the Board of Directors.

Prior to his time at IHC Merwede, he had gained invaluable experience in the naval shipbuilding and oil and gas industries. IHC Merwede’s Supervisory Board is convinced that Mr Roelse is capable of developing and continuing the company’s business strategy, as the current direction that IHC Merwede is taking was partly his responsibility as COO.
