Statement of the Supervisory Board of Stork Technical Services B.V. ("Stork"
"A new composition of the Board of Management of Stork Technical Services"
UTRECHT, The Netherlands, June 28, 2013 /CNW/ - The Supervisory Board has the
intention to appoint Mr. Arnold Steenbakker as the new CEO effective 1(st)
July 2013, subject to the advice of the Central Works Council. At the same
time, Doug Meikle and David Workman will resign as CEO and COO of the Company.
As a result the new Board of Management will exist of two people, Mr. Arnold
Steenbakker and Mr. Pim Oomens respectively as CEO and CFO.
Mr. Steenbakker (1957) has developed extensive international experience in the
Oil & Gas Industry during his 22 years with Fluor Corporation in several
senior management positions and international assignments. During his last
three years at Fluor he was responsible for growing its operations and
maintenance business worldwide. Thereafter he joined Fugro (2005), where he
was COO of two of its divisions before taking the position of Chairman of the
Board of Management through to November 2012.
His experience gives Mr. Steenbakker deep knowledge of our industry, hands on
project management experience, a clear understanding of the requirements of
our customers, combined with a long term strategic view of the development
potential of Stork. Mr. Steenbakker is therefore ideally placed, alongside Mr.
Oomens and the rest of the senior management of Stork to drive the Company
forward, grow our business internationally, whilst maintaining a strong and
profitable position in Europe.
We would like to thank Mr. Meikle for his efforts from 2009 till now for the
work he has done in consolidating the Company's operations and implementing
the one Stork concept, with a clear focus on becoming a global supplier of
maintenance and integrity services to the Oil & Gas and Process Industry. Its
professionalism, international presence, customer focus and safety record grew
under his leadership.
Mr. Workman, previously the CEO of RBG, has also been integral in this effort
and in ensuring the smooth integration of RBG into Stork post its acquisition
in May 2011. This significantly grew the Company's international operations.
We thank him for this contribution.
Mr. Henk Rottinghuis states: "Stork has built a strong market position, which
our Shareholder would like see expand. This new Board of Management will be
able to further work on our international footprint. Our Continental European
turnover is 45% of our total revenue now and will further decrease due to a
fast revenue growth outside of Europe".
We wish Mr. Steenbakker, Mr. Oomens, the management and employees of Stork
success in their efforts to continue to position Stork as the industry's
global leader in providing knowledge based asset integrity services.
We are convinced we can offer our customers a partnership based on our quality
and safety programs, building long term relationships profitable to both.
Their trust is our obligation.
Henk Rottinghuis Chairman Supervisory Board
