The chief executive of Heerema’s fabrication and marine business left the privately-owned player on 31 May, after 10 years at the Dutch company.

A replacement has not been named for Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven who had been chief executive of Heerema Fabrication Group since 2013, holding the same role at Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) for the past four years.

In an official statement from HMC framed Van Brouwershaven’s departure as a decision to look for new challenges.
