Volwater succeeds Basjan Faber, who will take up the position of chief financial officer at the company.

Faber and Volwater founded C-Job Naval Architects in 2007. Volwater previously served as ceo until 2017 when he took a leave of absence to take the role of sailing team director for Team AkzoNobel in the Volvo Ocean Race. He returned to C-Job in 2019 as chief commercial officer.

Further appointments to the executive team include Jeroen Liesveld, who has been with the company since 2010, as chief operational officer. Wouter den Boer has joined C-Job from Huisman Equipment as chief commercial officer.  

Volwater said: “Taking on these new roles will allow for new insights and a refreshed outlook for Basjan and myself. Together with these appointments, I believe we have the right leadership team in place to continue building towards a sustainable maritime industry. Together with our clients, we will realise our ambitious goals to develop decarbonised high-performance ships.”
