New MD for Rotterdam and Europe
Dennis joined BMT in 2004 and has over 20 years of experience in the maritime industry, the last 7 years as Marine Director for the nautical and cargo department of the Rotterdam office. Dennis succeeds Jeroen de Haas as Managing Director of BMT’s European offices in the Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland.
Dennis 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.”
“This new path will undoubtedly inspire staff and customers alike, and I am relishing the prospect of building an even stronger and resilient business with the existing experienced professionals working in this global organisation.”
