Jelmer Koopman has earned a Technical Business Engineering degree (BEng) at HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht and held various positions within the maritime industry. Amongst others with Damen, Stolt Tankers and Wilhelmsen, in both Project, Contract and Sales Management.
In 2014 Jelmer decided to dedicate his talents and time to social services at Mercy Ships, where he has been continuously onboard the Africa Mercy for about two years, dealing both with the Supply Chain management and with the engineering and preparation of projects and dry-docks in consultation with the Chief Engineer on board this good vessel. Mercy Ships delivers state of the art healthcare – free of charge. In his spare time Jelmer is a passionate sailor and diver.
Jelmer is eager to begin his new career at Huisfit: “I am looking forward to meet our clients, crew and co-makers and visit the Royal Huisman and Huisfit fleet as well as to preparing the refits yet to come as good as possible – in order for Huisfit to execute them to the highest standards against our competitive rates at our own state-of-the-art facilities in Amsterdam.”
