At AMSOL, it is our objective to ensure that clients continue to benefit from innovative marine solutions, experience value for money and a turn-key service that meets expectations. In line with the company’s strategic goals, deepening the commercial and operational skills and competence required to respond to and prioritise changing client requirements in Africa has been a focus of the Board of Directors.
To this end, three new appointments were recently announced that reflect AMSOL’s strategic commercial focus:
- Peet Reyneke has been appointed into the new role of Chief Commercial Officer and will lead AMSOL’s Commercial & Business Development efforts.
Peet has been with AMSOL for 16 years and has depth of experience in commercial and business development efforts across the continent, with a strong foundation in financial management. His understanding of industry and sector dynamics informs an innovative approach to commercial strategy, with client needs always at the centre
- A new Business Unit has been created as a combination of the Offshore Marine Services and Fuel Logistics & Transportation Business Units. Graham Dreyden has been appointed as Marine Services Executive accountable for optimising client relationships and operational efficiency, as well as supporting business growth in these sectors.
Following a successful career at sea as Chief Engineer, Graham moved into Fleet Management at AMSOL 12 years ago and has led the Fleet Management Services team for 6 years. His ability to match client requirements to a versatile, cost competitive marine solution underpins his service ethos, and he has driven business development efforts across the region.
- As Graham moves into his new role, Musa Mbakaza has been appointed to lead the Fleet Management Services Department as the Executive accountable for technical management, crewing and nautical services for the AMSOL owned and managed fleet in the region.
Musa joined AMSOL in 2018 after a seagoing career spanning more than 10 years. He has subsequently served as Fleet Operations Manager for two Business Units prior to taking accountability in 2021 for Fleet Operations & Crewing Services. Musa’s ability to balance commercial and operational pressures with SHEQ requirements whilst ensuring that the appropriate skills and competence are in place is a strength required in this role.
Chief Executive Officer Paul Maclons:
“With a reinforced leadership team in place, AMSOL remains focused on providing marine solutions that power growth in Africa. Rapidly changing dynamics in the Energy sector in particular require adaptable marine solutions to support economic activity and we look forward to working with clients to remain future focused.”
