Next generation of De Vries family take the helm at the yard

The next generation of the De Vries family has taken over the directorship of the Feadship Koninklijke De Vries Scheepsbouw yard in Aalsmeer, the Netherlands. Rob and Roderick are joined on the five-strong new board at the world-famous shipyard by three highly experienced directors from outside the family.

Meanwhile, Henk and Tom de Vries, who have led the yard since the 1990s, now have time to devote their full attention as directors of the De Vries Group.

Rob de Vries (whose father Johan de Vries was a director from 1973 to 2001) becomes director of projects, while Roderick de Vries (whose father Gerard de Vries was a director from 1973 to 2002) has taken on the role of technical director. The other directors are Bas Nederpelt (sales director), John Veldman (controller) and Dennis van Haasteren (director of operations).
