In July 2019, BSM proudly appointed Jeroen Deelen as the company’s new Chief Operating Officer (COO).

Jeroen, who was previously BSM’s Deputy COO, took over from David Furnival who has been appointed BSM Chairman for a three-year term.

David has amassed an exemplary career in the industry having recently celebrated his 21-year anniversary with BSM. He has worked both at sea and shore following opportunities which led him to his current role.

“I am delighted to hand over the COO baton to Jeroen, who brings with him over 17 years’ experience on shore in various segments. He is undoubtedly well-positioned to achieve and exceed predefined performance and quality levels in all operations whilst ensuring safety and security of the marine personnel,” said outgoing COO David Furnival.

Previously, Jeroen served as Deputy COO, Gas Tanker Director and Project Manager within the Schulte Group. “I am honoured by the opportunity to serve the BSM family in my new role. I look forward to working with them, building on the foundations laid by my predecessors, in particular by David Furnival who has led numerous transformational projects at BSM. I certainly have big shoes to fill,” said Jeroen.

“I am pleased to appoint Jeroen to his new role and I am confident he will build on David’s work to ensure BSM continues to operate in the most efficient and effective manner in accordance with global and regional marine legislation and quality standards,” said Ian Beveridge, Schulte Group CEO.
