The executive management team of Cape Town-based Southern Power Products (SPP) has been strengthened with the recent appointment of Jacques Brϋmmer as CEO.

The appointment of Brϋmmer – a former director of Cummins Southern Africa and a man with more than 20 years’ experience in the African diesel market – is aimed at supporting the existing SPP executive team, led by SPP founder and Managing Director, Noel Holmes, in realising the company’s future growth and expansion plans.

SPP, which is intent on becoming the preferred provider of leading, innovative technologies to the marine industry, plans to grow its business by actively expanding its Volvo Penta offering through focus across the broader commercial marine market, acquiring additional agencies and new technologies which complement its existing product portfolio, emphasizing a solutions sales approach.
Brϋmmer’s appointment also complements the recent, vertical integration of SPP into the Nautic Africa Group, a move which, according to Holmes, “is a significant value-add for SPP in light of Nautic’s presence and strength across Africa.”

The DOEN Pacific Waterjet product range- which Nautic acquired in 2014 – will be added to the SPP portfolio.  Further additions will be unveiled at Cape Town’s annual Boat Show, which takes place from October 9 – 11 this year.
