With this latest appointment, Fugro said it completes its new executive leadership team, which was established as of 1 May, consisting of the Board of Management, four regional Group Directors and several functional Group Directors.
Bijvank, who previously worked at Stork, a Fluor company, will take over the position beginning from 1 January 2020.
“We are pleased to welcome Erik-Jan Bijvank to Fugro as our new Group Director for Europe and Africa. Erik-Jan has extensive experience in managing complex technical projects in the energy industry and other international market segments,” said Mark Heine, CEO of Fugro.
From 2012 to 2017, Bijvank was Senior Vice President for Stork UK and Africa, and a member of the Global Management Team, while last year he took over the Regional Vice President position at Stork International.
“I am proud to continue my career at Fugro, a global and highly specialised company, and I look forward to working with a team of experienced and talented people. Together we will target a further strengthening of the company’s position in Europe and Africa. I am committed to accelerating strategy implementation and further increasing regional profitability,” Bijvank said.
