The Board is being strengthened to ensure the successful implementation of Port of Amsterdam's strategic ambitions. The CIO will play an important role in boosting Amsterdam as a sustainable European seaport and in stimulating and accelerating the energy transition and the circular activities within the port and in the North Sea Canal Area. Within Port of Amsterdam, Bosman will be responsible for infrastructure, space and environment and the participations, among other things.
 
Port of Amsterdam CEO Koen Overtoom: ‘With her extensive knowledge and experience in the field of renewable energy sources and infrastructure Dorine will significantly strengthen our company. Furthermore, the transition requires major investments and important choices. With Dorine we can take those steps. We are therefore delighted that she is joining us.’

After studying geophysics, Bosman worked for Shell for many years in the United States and Australia, among other places. For the past five years she has headed the Offshore Wind group within Shell's New Energies division. Dorine Bosman: ‘After so many years at Shell, I see working at the port of Amsterdam as a very appealing challenge. If there is one place where the energy transition in all its different forms is taking place and needs to be accelerated, it is there. It’s fascinating to able to be part of that and to give it direction.’
