Donche-Gay to head BV Marine & Offshore Division

Thursday, November 08, 2012

Bureau Veritas has restructured its marine and offshore activities and made a number of new key appointments. The moves follow the retirement of Bernard Anne from his position as Executive Vice-President and Managing Director of the Marine Division.
The marine and offshore activities have been merged into one Marine & Offshore Division, with a global network divided into four key areas. Philippe Donche-Gay has been appointed Executive Vice-President in charge of the Marine & Offshore Division, addressing both industry segments.
Since he joined Bureau Veritas in 2008, Philippe Donche-Gay has been Executive Vice- President in charge of the Industry & Facilities Division. He started his career with IBM, holding various management positions in France and in the United States. In 1994, he joined the international management of Capgemini and became Chief Executive Officer of Capgemini West Europe & Latin America. He holds an Engineering Degree from the Ecole Polytechnique (France) and Masters of Science from Stanford University (United States).
Didier Michaud-Daniel, Chief Executive Officer, Bureau Veritas, says, “Bernard Anne has served Bureau Veritas and the marine industry well. Under his leadership, BV’s marine business has grown and strengthened to deliver high-quality services. We thank him and wish him a happy and fulfilling retirement.  The new team headed by Philippe Donche-Gay will ensure that BV’s marine and offshore business continues to grow in competence, quality and dimension.”
Philippe Donche-Gay says, “Our portfolio of services covers every aspect of the marine and offshore industries. Our new structure will allow us to maximise the synergies between marine and offshore, giving both industries the best practices of the other. We have a very strong group behind us and are well placed to support owners and operators. I will be visiting most of our global clients to listen to their needs and to ensure that our new organisation will provide them with a constantly improving quality of service.”
