After years of enthusiastic dedication for Young IRO, Bernard Alblas has decided to step down as Chairman of the Young IRO board. His successor will be Sophie van Zanten.
Sophie: “After being part of the board for a year, with honour and pleasure I’ll take over Bernard’s position as Chairperson. In the past years, Bernard has made a tremendous contribution to Young IRO’s mission to make the Dutch offshore industry future-proof and empower the younger generation. My new role gives me the opportunity to further build on this. I am looking forward to working on this mission together with my colleagues in the Young IRO Board!“
Bernard: “Out with the old, in with the new; after 3 years it’s time for a new chairman. I look back with pride on the first 3 years of Young IRO. We succeeded in opening up the IRO to the Young Generation, creating a network of over 350 Young professionals that aim to innovate and strengthen the Dutch offshore industry. I look forward with enthusiasm and curiosity to what is yet to come. I had an amazing time working with great people and I have confidence in Sophie and the team to bring Young IRO to the next level.”
