N-Sea Holding has appointed Arno van Poppel as chief executive of the subsea IMR services provider.
Arno van Poppel succeeds Gerard Keser, who steps down from his current role after eight years with the company to take up a position on the company’s advisory board.
With a solid track record in the marine contracting environment, van Poppel has contributed to the growth and transformation of companies such as Fabricom and Boskalis Subsea Cables & Flexibles (formally VBMS).
Arno van Poppel said: “My experience aligns with the development of N-Sea, and I believe that the company is a thriving, independent platform which is ready for further growth. As we work in alliance with our partners in a number of key disciplines, I look forward to helping shape the company into a top tier player in the subsea infrastructure arena.”
Gerard Keser added: “I will be leaving the executive role within N-Sea knowing that a solid strategy, together with a strong and experienced management team is in place. The company is in excellent shape to take advantage of the many opportunities for growth.”
