New director officially appointed
At the Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 5 April 2017 Mr ir. S.C. (Stephan) van der Biezen was officially appointed as Director, as nominated by the Board of Directors. He succeeds Mr H.E. (Henk) Nieboer, who has reached the age of 55 earlier this year. At Witteveen+Bos the articles of association state that directors make way for a successor in the year they turn 55. The Board of Directors now comprises Van der Biezen and Ms ir. C.M. (Karin) Sluis.
In addition, as many as fourteen colleagues were presented as senior partner (4), premium partner (2) and partner (8). It was the first AGM in the company's history to be presided by the chairman of the Supervisory Board. The Supervisory Board was established in 2016, since after years of continuous growth Witteveen+Bos had met the relevant criteria as prescribed by Dutch law. Both the Board of Directors and the Supervisory Board reported to be pleased with the way their cooperation develops.
During the AGM the annual figures were established. Those can be found in the previously published press release and in the soon to be published annual report.
