C-Job Naval Architects, the international independent ship design and engineering company, has announced changes to its Executive Team. The changes to the leadership team are in support of the company’s mission to drive the global maritime industry towards sustainability by dedication and ingenuity.
Job Volwater will move from his position as Chief Commercial Officer and take on the position of Chief Executive Officer. He takes over from 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 was previously in the position of 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 as Chief Operational Officer. Liesveld has been with the company since 2010 and has served in various roles. Finally, Wouter den Boer – who recently joined C-Job as Chief Commercial Officer – joins the company from Huisman Equipment where he served in various commercial roles.
Job Volwater says, “In the 15 years since Basjan and I founded the company, C-Job has been driving change. 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.”
