ON OCTOBER 1ST, 2015, JÖRN HOLST JOINED GERMAN DRY DOCKS IN THE CAPACITY OF TECHNICAL DIRECTOR

Jörn Holst, who has recently joined German Dry Docks in the capacity of Technical Director, has been working in the shipbuilding- and engine technology industries since 1983.

He completed his training with Seebeck Werft AG (Seebeck Ship Yard ) in Bremerhaven after spending some time at sea. He then took up studies at Hochschule Bremerhaven from which he graduated (with a CI patent) before working as Service-Engineer at MAN Diesel in Turbo in Augsburg, Germany in the fields of Marine and Powerplant Applications. Five years later, he transferred to group-management of technical service. Another four years, he took over the management of technical service MAN Diesel & Turbo SE Augsburg, a mission he was committed to for the next nine years.

During the course of his career, Jörn Holst acquired a multitude of practical experience, not to be limited to metal works, assembly and repair but likewise in the areas of maintenance/service at the ship- and engine- operations as well as the management of large-scale projects. Profound knowledge in fields of contractual negotiations, personnel management/leadership and business management are further competences of Jörn Holst.

One of his greatest achievements so far is to have earned the trust and reputation of a bonafide and competent counterpart with an expertise in engine technology, corporate strategy and leadership.

Jörn Holst strengths are his “hands-on“ mentality, sincerity, his forthrightness, swift pace and decisiveness. These characteristics blend well with his motivation to join German Dry Docks as he sees German Dry Docks as a well-managed, young and fast-emerging enterprise with great potential for  growth and freedom to get actively involved in. In addition, to him, a feeling of “coming home“ resonates.

For German Dry Docks, Jörn Holst sees particular growth in decentralisation and medium-term internationalisation of the ship yard‘s enterprise through the expansion of the product portfolio around core competencies such as engine technology, retrofits and electronic engineering. His vision: to help develop German Dry Docks mid-term to become no. 1 in ship repair, maintenance, retrofits and specialty modifications.
