Bruijninckx takes overall responsibility for the daily operation of the company while Roodenburg will focus on technical product development and relationships with customers, the company said.

Roodenburg commented, ”Since 1981 Huisman is a family-owned business. I have taken over from my father and and my wish is to handover the company to the next generation. I am 67 now and want to step into a new role which allows me to fully focus on innovative technology for our current and new markets. We have been working with Theo for almost a year now and are convinced that he will further build on a solid and more structured foundation for our company. Besides his proven experience in a sector relevant to our business, we share the same conviction that innovation is key for the success of Huisman. In addition, we have come to know him as a no-nonsense, straightforward and pleasant person.”

Bruijninckx joined Huisman in May 2017 as chief financial officer and member of the Board. His experience includes 24 years at Ballast Nedam, joining the board in 2004, first as CFO, followed by seven years as CEO.
