Joop Roodenburg

Huisman has appointed André Meijer as Chief Executive Officer, effective 01 August 2015.

This appointment follows the decision of Joop Roodenburg to step down as the company’s CEO this year to the CTO position. From this new position, Joop Roodenburg can fully focus on Huisman’s technical innovation, the company said in a press release.

Furthermore, Joop Roodenburg will continue to lead the Sales and Concepts Group. As CTO, Joop Roodenburg will remain a member of the Board.

On behalf of the Huisman Board, Joop Roodenburg said:

”Since 1981 Huisman is a family business. I have taken over from my father and it is my dream that my children will take over the company in time. I have reached the age of 65 and I feel that it is time to further pave the way for the next generation by stepping aside and entering a role focused on innovation and technology.”

Ir. André Meijer (57) – Mechanical Engineering graduate from the Technical University in Delft – previously held the position of Managing Director of Imtech Marine. Prior to his role at Imtech Marine, he held various leadership positions at Volker Wessels Telecom, KPN, AT&T and Philips Lighting.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
