New Executive VP for Van der Velden Marine Systems

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

Paul van Maanen (48) has joined Van der Velden® Marine Systems as Executive Vice President. He brings with him years of experience as a Managing Director in the shipbuilding  and aircraft industries. Van Maanen will join the Corporate Executive Board and be co-responsible for the overall operation and management of the entire Van der Velden group of companies. He joins a four men strong Corporate Executive  Board, which also includes Gerrit Spekman (CEO), Edwin van Buren (CTO) and Wiggert Pols (COO).

After studying at Erasmus University and Technical University Twente, Van Maanen started his career as Area Sales Manager at Stork (industrial products & services). In 1993 he moved to Shipyard Peters, where he worked as Vice President and CEO. Between 2000 and 2003 Van Maanen was on the Board of Driessen Aerospace Group as President of the Galley Division. This was followed by a seven-year period as Managing Director at GEA Group AG in Berlin, where he was responsible for the International Solutions and Services Business unit.

“I have always considered the shipbuilding industry to be the most vibrant area in which to work,” comments Van Maanen. “It is a very exciting challenge to return to this sector with a company like Van der Velden, which has such a solid team and well founded ambitions.”

“We are delighted to welcome someone with such wide international experience,” adds Gerrit Spekman, CEO at Van der Velden Marine Systems. “With Van Maanen on board, we are certain that Van der Velden can navigate future developments and challenges with confidence.”
