Leadership Change at Subsea Global Solutions Belgium B.V.


Leadership Change at Subsea Global Solutions Belgium B.V.

We are excited to announce that effective of Monday the 24th of April 2023, Wouter Sanders (currently the VP / GM of SGS US Gulf Coast Diving LLC) is appointed as the Managing Director of Subsea Global Solutions Belgium B.V., located in Antwerp.

This internal appointment follows the retirement of Manuella Maes and Pierre Klein, who have stepped down from their positions as Managing Director and Technical Director, Europe. As the founders of Ship Repair Network Group, both Manuella and Pierre have been tremendously helpful in integrating the SRN Group capabilities into the Subsea Global’ network of wholly owned offices and ensuring its continued successful growth in the critical European market. (SRN Group was the former name of Subsea Global Solutions Belgium B.V. prior to its acquisition in September 2021.)

Paul Peters, CEO of Subsea Global Solutions said “While we are sorry to see Manuella and Pierre retire, we understand their desire to spend more time for themselves and their families. We are thankful to them for their professionalism and support rendered since 2021, and wish them well on their future endeavors.  

I am exceptionally delighted to see our own Wouter Sanders to take up on the critical responsibility to run our Antwerp office and take the business to the next level.

Wouter, who joined us a commercial diver, has proven himself in the field, and as an inspirational and experienced leader in key roles over the last decade at locations like Miami, Curacao and lastly Houston, and I have no doubt he will succeed in his new role.”

Wouter Sanders has commented “I am very happy to have the opportunity to continue my journey at Subsea Global Solutions, a company that has progressed immensely since I joined in 2007. We are now a fully international organization with high ambitions to grow our business in Europe, driven by our state-of-the-art hull cleaning ROV’s with biofouling reclaim, and technical underwater maintenance and repair services.  We have a great team consisting of high-quality professionals and I am truly excited to be part of this talented group.”
