You have been informed that Wilco Stroet our Senior Vice-President - Maritime and Oil & Gas, will leave our Group to embrace a new project in another company. We wish him a lot of success in this new challenge in his career and we thank him for all the dedication to his job over the last 20 years, that I have worked with him and that he has worked for Royal Lankhorst Euronete Group and now WireCo WorldGroup.
After careful considerations, we have decided to restructure our activities and make Global leaders for our Maritime and Oil & Gas activities to further enhance our ability to continue to build our business and develop even further our Technical Leadership on the two referred markets.
To accomplish these we will implement the following changes in our organization :
Global Industry Leader Maritime&Marketing: 
Steven Wardenier
Global Industry Leader Oil & Gas Synthetics: 
Rui Faria
Global Industry Leader Oil & Gas Steel:  
John Josendale
So again we put together a strong team in all the mentioned areas with the goal to support our customers and continue to develop our presence in the different markets that we are involved in. And this, as I referred to before, will continue to develop the Technical leadership in the markets where we have a presence.
These changes are effective December 1, 2014. If you have any questions about this information, please let me know. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
José Luis Gramaxo
SVP – Chief Commercial Officer
