Even after 14 years in the service of CWM, a lack of enthusiasm for his work is the last that can be blamed on Pierre Montesant. As the brand-new CWM director, which was officially completed on 1 January this year, he looks to the future of the 69-year-old company with confidence. He sees countless opportunities ahead to do more, in a more innovative and sustainable way. Born in Curaçao, like so many others, he went to the Netherlands after high school to study. He studied Civil Engineering at the HTS in Den Bosch, after which he supervised the construction of roads and tunnels for Rijkswaterstaat and a large road builder.
After 19 years in the Netherlands, he itched and in 2006 he returned to Curaçao to be charged with calculation and work preparation for CWM and its sister company BWM (Bonaire) – and more along the way. “95 men and women, from pipe fitters and asphalt processors to civil engineers, work here in various fields, from the construction of roads to synthetic turf fields”. From 2019, Montesant led the sister companies Windward Roads & Construction with approximately 125 employees on St. Maarten, St. Eustatius and Saba and Anguilla Roads & Construction for Janssen de Jong Caribbean. For the time being, he is still supervising these companies until a suitable successor has been found.
