Gardline Names Vermeijden CEO
Marine survey company Gardline has appointed Christiaan Vermeijden as Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Vermeijden will replace Gardline's current interim CEO, Gerben Eggink.
Vermeijden joins the U.K. based Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. subsidiary after leaving his position as CEO at Norway-based Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS). Prior to his role with EMGS, he was part of the Executive Management Team and Global Offshore Geotechnical Director at Fugro N.V.
He holds a Master of Science (MSc) degree in Physical Geography from the University of Amsterdam and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the Rotterdam School of Management.
"We’re seeing the green shoots of a recovery in offshore exploration and production, and consistent strong growth in offshore renewables," Vermeijden said. "Our partners recognize that Gardline's marine geophysical, geotechnical, and environmental surveys will be vital for them to succeed in a transforming energy sector."
