Hertel makes senior ME appointments
Abu Dhabi, September 14, 2011
Hertel, a leading industrial maintenance and construction services company, has announced several key changes in its top management in the Middle East.
The move follows the recent restructuring of Hertel’s operations in the region which saw the creation of two sub-regions with offices in Abu Dhabi to cover UAE, Qatar and Oman and offices in Damman serving Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.
Jan Bruggenthijs will take up the role, on an interim basis, as director for the Middle East taking over from John Potts who is returning to the UK, said a statement from the Rotterdam-headquartered company.
Jan has held a number of senior management roles including at Stork Industrial Services and Fabricom. He will report to Hertel Holding BV board member Kees de Korver who has responsibility for the region.
David Nickerson becomes regional director for Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. Previously David worked as managing director of BIS Salamis as well as holding senior positions in Cape and Bains Harding.
Lee McLean Marshall takes up the position as regional director for UAE, Qatar and Oman, which expands his role having had responsibility for Hertel in Qatar. Lee has previously worked for Hertel in the UK and for Watson Norrie.
Kees de Korver, Hertel executive board director, said, “Hertel is now well-established in the region employing more than 2,000 people and working with local and international customers.'
'Jan, David and Lee are all highly experienced and understand the market and their appointments will further strengthen our position in the region,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
