By Murray Pollok16 November 2021
The third Cranes and Transport Middle East (CATME) conference will be held in Dubai, UAE, on 22 and 23 March 2022. Paul van Gelder, Mammoet CEO, will be keynote speaker.
The event was originally scheduled for October 2020 but was postponed because of the pandemic. CATME will be held at the Swisshotel Al- Murooj, which is in the Downtown area close to the Dubai Mall.
CATME is an essential learning and networking event for anyone working in the region’s crane and specialized transport sector.
Topics in 2022 event will include improving health and safety in lifting and transport applications, productivity and fleet management, best practice and case studies from around the world.
Van Gelder became Mammoet CEO in October 2017. In recent years the company has consolidated its position as the world’s largest crane and transport company with its acquisition of fellow global specialist ALE.
Following a career in the Dutch Navy, van Gelder returned to the civilian world in 2004. After a couple of years in the aviation industry he joined BP in the Netherlands as a maintenance manager. Soon after he was made project director and, at the end of 2007, he became managing director.
In 2010 van Gelder changed jobs to be CEO of the national grid company in the Netherlands. After three years he left to troubleshoot a company in distress. A couple of years later he was approached by SHV, Mammoet’s parent company, where he joined the board of sister company Eriks. In 2017 SHV asked him to join Mammoet.
