Jaap-Jan Pietersen has joined the Combifloat team in Rotterdam as deputy managing director as of February 1st.
During the year, Jaap-Jan will gradually take over the leadership from Bas de Jong who will focus on a more strategical role within the group as Chairman of the Board.
Jaap-Jan brings along substantial experience in the offshore industry across important markets that complement Combifloat’s network. He will build on the work already done to develop a strategy for further growth.
