Roel de Graaf will take UP the position of managing director of Netherlands Maritime Technology (NMT), beginning July 1, 2016 as the successor to Peter Zoeteman, who served as managing director of the trade association from May 2013 to June 2016.
“We are pleased to welcome a new managing director who is so familiar with the many aspects of the maritime sector,” says Hans Voorneveld, chairman of NMT. 
“Roel is a passionate shipbuilder who has worked for both yards and marine equipment suppliers. He will lead the NMT organization in tackling the challenges faced by our sector and the NMT board has complete confidence that it has found the right candidate to take over the position currently held by Peter Zoeteman.”
After completing his shipbuilding studies at the higher technical college in Dordrecht, Roel de Graaf worked at various yards. In the early 1980s he took on his first managerial position at Shipyard De Haas and later held management functions at companies such as Vahali, IHC Metalix and IHC Interior & Piping. From June 2014 to June 2016 Roel de Graaf was chief operating officer at CIG NV.
While acting as managing director at IHC Metalix, De Graaf was on the board of the Holland Marine Equipment Association from 2002 to 2005. Since May 2015 he has represented CIG NV on the board of NMT.
The prospective managing director can leverage on 35 years of experience in the maritime sector and a wealth of expertise in the international world of shipbuilding and maritime supplies, including the construction of new vessels, ship repairs, inland shipping, dredging, work vessels and superyachts.
