Jon Holvik joins Thrustmaster as Executive VP
Thrustmaster of Texas, a major US based manufacturer of marine propulsion systems for over 35 years, acquired the ICON Dynamic Positioning business from Rolls Royce earlier this year. The DP product addition to the Thrustmaster product portfolio has been a great compliment to Thrustmaster’s existing product line and has seen incredible interest since being acquired. In addition to the rights to produce and sell future units of the DP products, Thrustmaster also has responsibility for the maintenance, service and upgrades of existing DP systems presently in operation around the word. Thrustmaster is now pleased to announce the addition of Jon Holvik to the Thrustmaster team as the Executive Vice President for Business Development of Dynamic Positioning Systems. In this new role, Jon Holvik will be responsible to oversee the DP product business and develop growth and improvement.
Jon Holvik brings with him over 30 years of highly respected experience in the DP field having previously worked with Kongsberg Maritime starting as a service engineer, then being promoted to sales manager, vice president of sales and marketing and finally president of Kongsberg Maritime, Inc. Jon also was involved in the start-up of the marine technology society (MTS) DP committee and served on the executive advisory board of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC).
Joe Bekker, Thrustmaster’s President, states: “Jon Holvik brings a wealth of experience and deep knowledge of dynamic positioning with him to Thrustmaster. Jon will be an authoritative force in developing and implementing Thrustmaster’s business strategy for new sales and for aftermarket sales of existing DP systems presently in operation.”
