"A new composition of the Board of Management of Stork Technical
UTRECHT, The Netherlands, June 28, 2013 /CNW/ - The Supervisory Board
has the intention to appoint Mr. Arnold Steenbakker as the new CEO
effective 1st 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
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
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
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
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.
Chairman Supervisory Board
