BMT has appointed a new managing director for its Commercial Shipping Europe business. Dennis de Bruin has taken up his new role with immediate effect.
de Bruin joined BMT in 2004, and has served as Marine Director for the nautical and cargo department of the Rotterdam office for the last seven years.
In his new role, he succeeds Jeroen de Haas as Managing Director of BMT's European offices in the Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland. de Haas is leaving the organisation after serving as leader of Commercial Shipping Europe since 2001.
Dennis de Bruin said “I am honoured and excited to lead Commercial Shipping Europe out of BMT’s strategically located offices in Rotterdam, Antwerp, Amsterdam, Groningen, Arnhem and Geneva. We are at an exciting juncture in our journey as we focus on growing our ‘traditional player’ markets and meeting new client demand for specialist advice in emergency response consultancy and distressed cargo risk assessment."
While continuing to be focused on our core, existing survey capabilities, we will grow BMT’s global consultancy and technology portfolios to reach and diversify into adjacent markets. In addition we are exploring larger simulation and renewable energy projects in Singapore and South East Asia, and how to harness virtual reality training benefits with innovative products such as BMT’s REMBRANDT ship simulator."
