Royal IHC makes a change at the helm

Royal IHC will see a change at the helm come January 1, 2022. The company has named Jan Pieter Klaver as its new CEO, replacing Gerben Eggink, who fulfilled the role of CEO on an interim basis for more than a year and a half.

With the appointment of Jan Pieter Klaver, Royal IHC is bringing in an experienced CEO from the maritime sector. Together with Paul van der Harten (CFO) and Kees van der Snel (COO), they form the three-member Executive Board.

During his more than 25 year career at Heerema, he fulfilled various (management) roles, including manager of the Heerema shipyard in Vlissingen. After being CEO of Heerema Fabrication Group for a number of years, he became CEO of Heerema Marine Contractors in 2009. In 2017, he made the move to Kenz Figee, where until recently he was CEO.

“Gerben has established a strong foundation on which I will continue to build. I look forward to helping Royal IHC to lead the way in making the maritime industry more sustainable and efficient, together with all employees,” Jan Pieter Klaver said.
