Huisman announced Theo Bruijninckx has been appointed as the company’s new chief executive officer to replace Joop Roodenburg, who decided to step down to the president role.

Bruijninckx joined Huisman as chief financial officer and member of the board in May 2017. In his new role as CEO, he is responsible for the daily operation of the company, while Roodenburg will focus on the development of technical solutions and customer relationships.

“Since 1981 Huisman is a family owned business. I have taken over from my father and my wish is to handover the company to the next generation. I am 67 now and want to step into a new role which allows me to fully focus on innovative technology for our current and new markets,” Roodenburg said. “We have been working with Theo for almost a year now and are convinced that he will further build on a solid and more structured foundation for our company. Besides his proven experience in a sector relevant to our business, we share the same conviction that innovation is key for the success of Huisman. In addition, we have come to know him as a no-nonsense, straightforward and pleasant person.”

Bruijninckx has extensive general and financial management experience as he worked for 24 years at Ballast Nedam. In 2004 he joined the Ballast Nedam board of directors, first as CFO, followed by seven years as CEO.
