Elgin Brown & Hamer Namibia (EBHN) this week confirmed the resignation of the company’s chief executive officer, Hannes Uys.

According to a press statement issued by the company, Uys made substantial contributions to the advancement of EBHN since being appointed as in 2012.

“During his tenure he has been responsible for implementing significant changes to improve operations and position the company to strategically leverage future growth and long-term sustainability.”

The statement further said that Heritha Nankole Muyoba, who has several decades of human resources and executive management experience, will be taking over as interim CEO.

“EBHN would like to reassure all stakeholders that the company remains completely focused on maintaining its position as the shipyard of choice along the west coast of Africa, with an unwavering commitment to valued clients, service providers, employees and the maritime industry as a whole, going forward.

“Uys leaves EBHN well-prepared and ready to meet future challenges in a dynamic and resilient manner. EBHN thanks Uys sincerely for his excellent contribution and strong, ethical leadership during the past seven years,” said the statement.

Uys’ resignation will take effect as of 30 November.

The company operates three privately-owned floating docks in Walvis Bay, including a Panamax-sized dock.
