Antwerp names Vandermeiren

June 27 - Effective January 1, 2017, Jacques Vandermeiren will become ceo of Antwerp Port Authority, succeeding Eddy Bruyninckx, who has been the head of the port authority for the past 25 years.

Until January 2015, Vandermeiren held the position of chief executive officer of Elia, the listed company that operates the national electricity grid in Belgium. He can draw on extensive experience in the energy sector, which will stand him in good stead with the industrial operators in the port. He also has the necessary experience with complex stakeholder management and in dealing with a publicly-owned shareholder.

"These two aspects, combined with the necessary international experience, strong communication skills and inspiring people management, convinced the board to appoint Vandermeiren as the new ceo," declared Port Authority chairman Marc Van Peel.

Vandermeiren starts on November 1, 2016 as ceo-designate, which means that he will shadow Eddy Bruyninckx who retains full authority as ceo, chairman of the management committee and managing director until December 31, 2016.
