Dutch systems integrator RH Marine has named Hugo Loudon as its new CEO. Loudon succeeds Edwin van Ierland, who has taken the role of chief commercial officer (COO) at RH Marine.

RH Marine is part of the RH Marine Group (formerly Imtech Marine), which was sold to Parcom Capital and Pon Holdings in November 2015.

“Having rebranded RH Marine last year we now pursue a more focused strategy supported by high-tech product and service innovation,” says RH Marine Group CEO René ten Brinke. “The prime focus is on the naval, special vessels, yachts and ferries markets. We believe Hugo Loudon will play a vital role in successfully managing this new direction.”

Loudon was COO at Hertel, a leading industrial services company in scaffolding and insulation activities in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. He managed the operations of Hertel and was part of the executive board.

Before Hertel, Loudon worked amongst others as managing director of Tata Steel Packaging.
