Global supplier of maritime digital data and compliance services, ChartCo, has announced the appointment of Hans Gieskes as Chairman.
In addition to chairing a range of companies, including the successful AXIO Data Group, Mr Gieskes has been CEO and President of organizations such as Cision – global market leader of cloud-based software and services for PR professionals, and LexisNexis - global market leader for online information and services for legal and risk-management industries. Almost all of his career has been associated with digital technology businesses.
ChartCo has made two acquisitions this year, strategically-driven purchases which help pave the way for its ambitious plans. Already offering the most comprehensive and widely-used digital platform in the marine industry, the acquisitions represent key milestones in fulfilment of the market’s desire for a single, fully-integrated digital platform linking ship and shore functions for improved decision making and performance efficiency.
ChartCo’s recent acquisitions expand its integrated solution to include safety management and environmental processes and its customers are already seeing the benefits of this. Shipping - like every other industry - is constantly looking for performance improvements and ChartCo is at the forefront of this.”
