Maikel Takken appointed as new CEO of KenzFigee

KenzFigee has the pleasure to announce the appointment of Maikel Takken as CEO of KenzFigee as per 1 October 2021.

Maikel will take over the position from Jan-Pieter Klaver, who has led the organization since his appointment in 2017. Jan Pieter will remain as advisor to the board until the end of this year and will support Maikel in his new role.

Jan-Pieter has led the organisation the last 4 years with passion and energy through a successful transition to broaden KenzFigee’s position in the offshore industry and renewable market.

Maikel Takken started his career in the heavy lift industry 15 years ago and joined MeeMaken in 2013. Maikel gained technical, commercial and managerial experience working in multiple positions both nationally and internationally. Since 2017 he has successfully led Alltec Lifting Systems in Houston. Maikel has an impressive curriculum and the right skillset to further develop KenzFigee to be the preferred supplier for cranes and equipment.

MeeMaken, since 2016 major shareholder of KenzFigee, says: “KenzFigee has strengthened its position into a valuable provider in the offshore crane and equipment market over the last 4 years. With opening an office in Aberdeen, KenzFigee expanded its position in the UK service market. We are proud that today KenzFigee is a stable, healthy company and ready for the future.”

We are grateful to Jan-Pieter for his dedication and professionalism and wish him all the best and wish Maikel every success in his new position.
