IHC Merwede Names New CEO for SE Asia

Wednesday, November 23, 2011
IHC Merwede appointed Denis Welch as its CEO for South East Asia. He will be responsible for helping the company to reinforce its regional identity and expand its Asian-centred operations – which are focussed on its offshore and marine activities. IHC Merwede President Govert Hamers says: “Mr Welch’s appointment will assist the company in strengthening its strategy of internationalisation. We have successfully operated from our regional organisation in Singapore for the past four years and are in the process of opening new offices in the PSA building on Alexandra Road to support our ambitions of growth. I am confident that our new CEO will help to further develop IHC Merwede’s presence within the region.”
Singapore is one of the many countries in which IHC Merwede operates. The South East Asia office was opened in 2007 with the aim of providing optimal service to local customers in the dredging and offshore markets. Mr Welch adds: “I am delighted to join IHC Merwede at a key point in its expansion plans. I am particularly impressed by the way in which the company develops innovative solutions in-house and through strategic business acquisitions. I am confident that our customers will welcome this further commitment to serving their interests in Asia. “I aim to build on this approach from my base in Singapore and to provide the necessary support to drive the company forward by maintaining IHC Merwede’s excellent reputation for ontime and on-budget delivery.”
