Alewijnse appoints Christel Pullens Global Dir Sales & Marketing

07 June 2019

Alewijnse has appointed Christel Pullens as Global Director Sales & Marketing. She has been a member of the Board of Directors since 1 June 2019 and is responsible for all the Dutch and international commercial activities of the electrical services provider.

Christel Pullens has 22 years of international experience in the maritime sector, in which she held various technical and commercial positions at leading companies such as Wärtsilä, Dockwise and Damen Shiprepair & Conversion. In her new role she will share her knowledge and experience to accomplish continuous growth for Alewijnse, a leading specialist in electrical and automation systems for the maritime and industrial industries.

“Alewijnse is a great company that has more than proven itself in the maritime sector,” says Christel Pullens. “In my position as Global Director Sales & Marketing, I will focus on strengthening our relationships with our customers and strategic partners and further develop our international networks. We will look into broadening the segments in which we are currently active: yachts, ships for navies and governments, dredgers and offshore and transport vessels. In addition, I would like to expand my sales and marketing team. Keep an eye on our website for updates about our activities.”

Returning to my roots
“The main reason for choosing Alewijnse was being able to work in a project environment in shipbuilding and ship repair again,” continues Christel. “That is where my heart is. I have worked at all kinds of shipyards around the world in the past. This new role brings me back to my roots.”

“In addition, the diversity in the Alewijnse workplace is very appealing to me. I missed the dynamics of this mix in some of my previous jobs. The people that I have met so far at Alewijnse are experienced, enthusiastic and strive for success. I feel honored to be working with them to build the future of the company.”
