Ardent Announced Refocus of Strategy and Relocation of HQ
Ardent, a leading Emergency Management and Wreck Removal company, announced a refocus of its strategy and a relocation of its headquarter.
Ardent will refocus its strategy away from decommissioning towards its core business of emergency management and wreck removal. It has a market leading position in these areas which it intends to build further. Ardent will also move its headquarter from Houston, USA, to Ijmuiden, the Netherlands, where the new CEO, Oliver Timofei, and CFO, Jens Jaeger, are based.
These moves will continue the positive momentum experienced in emergency management (emergency preparedness & emergency response) and wreck removal over the last 4 years and make Ardent more customer centric. Ardent will continue to provide its Global Preparedness Cover offerings as well as its OPA90 SMFF services for the USA. All of Ardent’s four major response hubs in the Netherlands, USA, Singapore and Australia as well as its offices in Korea, Brazil, South Africa and the UK will be there to serve its customers.
Oliver Timofei, CEO, who previously served as Vice President – Emergency Management, comments, “Ardent is well positioned to build its position as one of the global, market leading emergency management and wreck removal companies. We have over the last two years successfully executed on average over 25 major cases per year. These have received praise from our key clients and recognition from the industry overall. This demonstrates Ardent’s strong capability in these areas. We will continue to build our expertise and services within this space to effectively serve our clients within the maritime world, as well as develop new relationships in the oil and gas sector. Ardent is committed to successfully execute all current decommissioning projects in implementation and going forward will focus selectively on subsea and decom projects that fit with Ardent’s core business”.
