Together with HDI, Denis received several industry recognitions, in Australia (1987), US (1999), Europe (2011) and France (2012, 2015 and 2018), for innovative HDD projects onshore, as well as marine based. He was a founding member and the first treasurer of the professional organisation DCA Europe in 1994 and served as its Vice President from 2008 to 2016.
