Holvik joins Thrustmaster
Thrustmaster of Texas acquired the ICON Dynamic Positioning business from Rolls Royce earlier this year, a DP product addition to the Thrustmaster product portfolio. 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.
To support this addition, Thrustmaster has added Jon Holvik to the Thrustmaster team as the Executive Vice President for Business Development of Dynamic Positioning Systems. In this new role, Holvik will be responsible to oversee the DP product business and develop growth and improvement.
Holvik brings more than 30 years of 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. He 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).
