From 1 April, Marc van Heyningen will become the new Chief Operations Officer (COO) of Damen Shipyards Group.

This completes the Executive Board of the Dutch maritime solutions provider. Van Heyningen is the successor to Jan-Wim Dekker, who started as Chief Commercial Officer on 1 January. In addition to CEO Arnout Damen, Dekker and Van Heyningen, Andreas Fluhrer (Chief Transformation Officer), and Tom Touber (Chief Financial Officer) serve as board members.

"We warmly welcome Marc on board," said Arnout Damen. "With his experience and background, he is certainly able to take operational excellence within our company to an even higher level."
