will Steer the TIC Titans Through 2024.
In 2023, BV witnessed a historic shift as Hinda Gharbi ascends to CEO, becoming the first woman to hold this title within the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS).
Gharbi's immediate impact at BV was marked by a decisive reorganization, which reshaped the executive committee and introduced strategic segmentation. This included splitting APAC operations into two distinct regions — Asia Pacific and the Middle East — and establishing a CSR Committee. Gharbi also promoted Vincent Bourdil from SVP South East Asia and Pacific to EVP, thus underscoring BV’s dynamic response to evolving market demands and reinforcing its commitment to deeply embedding sustainability within its operations and to accelerating strategic initiatives.
Looking ahead to 2024, we anticipate Gharbi will focus on enhancing team cohesion and functionality, building a robust executive team as a cornerstone for new strategic directions and cultural shifts. It is also expected that Gharbi might take strategic risks to venture into new markets and refine business operations, aiming for heightened efficiency.
