Kahn believes that in this new role he will be better positioned to contribute to the long-term strategy and success of Jumbo Shipping, Jumbo Offshore and Jumbo-SAL-Alliance.

Janssens has served as Jumbo’s chief operating officer for several years and has extensive leadership experience in both heavy lift shipping and offshore installation.

Kahn said: “Wout is the right leader to take over the next phase of development for our organisation. He knows the inner workings of the company and is a proven team player who collaborates across all company levels, from shareholders to supervisory board and the management team. His wealth of experience, combined with his entrepreneurial attitude and open personality make him the perfect leader for Jumbo.”

Jan Peter Breedeveld will succeed Janssens as chief operating officer.
