Company restructures after ALE acquisition and appoints combination of its own and ALE senior staff as regional heads
Global heavy-lift and move specialist Mammoet has confirmed details of an expanded regional structure and the appointment of regional managing directors following its recent acquisition of ALE, with Jack van den Brink appointed as head of the Middle East and Africa region.
The company said its business organisation now consists of five regions in order to reflect the operational footprint of the newly combined business. The regions are Asia Pacific (APAC), Europe & Russia (EU/R), Latin America (LATAM), Middle East and Africa (MEA) and North America (NA).
The regional managing director roles mirror these five regions and will be occupied by established figures from across the company’s culture. Apart from Van den Brink, the other appointments are John Halfweeg for APAC, Wouter van Noort for EU/R, Sergio Vanina for LATAM and Martijn Kuipers for NA. All regional managing directors will report to Mammoet CEO Paul van Gelder.
“Our regional managing directors are a strong representation from both Mammoet and ALE, and as such provide a good foundation for preserving the best of both cultures as we continue to integrate and optimise our operations,” said Van Gelder.
“Importantly, their experience as seasoned engineered heavy lifting and transport professionals will ensure that our newly expanded capabilities deliver the very best value for our clients, wherever they are in the world.”
