New appointments at Survitec

Survitec has appointed Mr. Baba Devani to spearhead the company’s newly restructured division.

Mr. Devani joins Survitec as Managing Director, Survitec – Marine, with the mandate to strengthen the group’s divisional structure with a more customer-oriented service philosophy.

His appointment follows senior executive positions at Berendsen plc where, as Managing Director, Workwear, he led the company’s largest division to commercial success, prior to his appointment in 2016 as a member of the executive board.

Mr. Devani’s appointment is followed by the recruitment of Jan Eskil Hollen, who joined the organisation in May as Managing Director, Survitec Scandinavia.

Survitec CEO James Drummond said: “We are delighted to welcome both Baba and Jan Eskil to the Survitec family. There are clear synergies with their extensive experience and our vision to facilitate future growth across all marine sectors.”

The new appointments are part of Survitec’s strategy, announced in November 2018, to reorganise its marine business around key market segments – passenger, energy and commercial vessels – to create dedicated sales, service and support dedicated to each sector.
