Brenninkmeijer new CEO of NPRC

Brenninkmeijer new CEO of NPRC

(Posted on 09/04/20)

Europe’s largest cooperative in inland-waterway shipping, NPRC, will welcome Femke Brenninkmeijer

as its new CEO on the 1st of June 2020.

Brenninkmeijer is currently head of the Energy, Cargo and

Offshore division at the Port of Amsterdam. By choosing Brenninkmeijer, NPRC has

chosen a woman with a lot of drive, who is striving for growth and sustainability.  

Brenninkmeijer is leaving the Port of Amsterdam after almost

twelve years during which she successfully managed the

commercial business unit Energy, Cargo and Offshore. At the port

she was responsible for a successful strategy of transition in the

raw materials sector, market expansion, sustainability and

She was one of the driving forces behind the successful

development of Amsterdam as a destination for general cargo.

Under extremely challenging circumstances, she also managed the

Energy Division, which is, under the pressure of climate targets,

facing the biggest change in its history.

Frank Ex, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of NPRC: "Femke Brenninkmeijer is extremely

well suited to lead the NPRC. We are looking forward to her energy, sharp mind and

entrepreneurial intuition, for which she is praised at the Port of Amsterdam. She is exactly the

right person to lead NPRC through the difficult period after the corona crisis. With her vision,

experience and unifying leadership style, she will guide our special club into a new future."

Brenninkmeijer is happy about her new job. "I am looking forward to leading the NPRC team

and working for the cooperative. This task has become even more challenging in the last few

weeks". She sees realistic opportunities to strengthen the position of the inland waterway

sector. "I see opportunities in markets where we have not yet focused our attention on. During

the current corona crisis, it has once again become clear that logistics is one of the key

professions and that society is much more dependent on this sector than people are aware of. I

hope that the current awareness will lead to a reassessment and appreciation of the sector

during my time at the NPRC".  

Brenninkmeijer succeeds Stefan Meeusen as CEO. Meeusen leaves NPRC after 10 years in

April 2020 and will start as Managing Director at Peterson Inspection & Logistics on May 18th.

With a fleet of 120 barges, the NPRC cooperative transports more than 14 million tonnes of

dry cargo each year throughout Europe. The cooperative works for a large

number of shippers in various sectors and has offices in Rotterdam, Antwerp, Paris, Mannheim

and Duisburg. The NPRC focuses on sustainability, digitisation and supply chain optimisation.
