Royal IHC lines up CEO replacement

Royal IHC, a Dutch provider of offshore and dredging services, is lining up a CEO replacement.

The company, formerly known as IHC Merwede, said on Monday that its current CEO Bram Roelse would step down on September 1, 2016.

Roelse, who took over the position in April 2014 from predecessor Dirk Philips, will be succeeded by Dave Vander Heyde. Vander Heyde has been CFO at IHC since 2011.

“Accustomed to the challenges the company is facing, his experience will be an invaluable asset in his new role,” the company said of its soon to be new CEO.

Commenting on the departing CEO, Royal IHC said: “During his time in this role, Mr Roelse has used his in-depth knowledge and experience to
determine and roll out the IHC2020 strategy under difficult market conditions. The Supervisory Board is extremely grateful for this and his enormous contribution to IHC over the past 16 years.”
