Heesen Yachts appoints new CEO

Heesen Yachts appoints new CEO

Heesen Yachts has appointed Arthur Brouwer as its new CEO, effective February 1 2016. Brouwer has been serving as Executive Chairman since September 2014.

As CEO, Brouwer will lead Heesen Yachts to its next stage of development.

“It is a great privilege to head Heesen, an internationally respected Company which has been setting standards of excellence and design engineering innovation for the past 38 years,” Brouwer said

“My past experiences have enabled me to acquire great knowledge of the operational excellence, sales and marketing, strategy and my concrete aim moving forward is to capitalise and build on what has previously been achieved by taking Heesen to the next chapter of its history.”

Brouwer brings with him a deep understanding of the retail, automotive wholesale and production industries. He has 19 years’ experience in senior leadership roles as well as CEO positions in listed large family firms and private equity.

During his time as CEO, Heesen has had a very busy few weeks. Sibelle won big at the ShowBoats Design Awards 2016, taking a trophy for her AB Studio/ Omega Architects-design exterior. Heesen’s largest superyacht to date – Galactica Super Nova – was launched in March and only a week before, the yard displayed its 47-metre superyacht Asya at the Dubai International Boat Show.
