direct/ Eureko B.V. (NL) - European Development Strategy Results in Changes to Executive Board Responsibilities
|Pressemitteilung von: Eureko B.V.|
|(openPR) - Eureko B.V. today announced that, in line with its focus on developing its stated international ambitions over the coming years, there will be changes to the portfolios of some of the Executive Board Members. These changes will take effect from 4 April, following the publication of Eureko´s 2006 annual results.
Ernst Jansen (Vice Chairman), who is currently responsible for the whole of Eureko´s European strategy, will for the coming period concentrate fully on its investment in PZU, Poland, where Eureko has a 33% shareholding, with an outstanding agreement to acquire a further 21%, and thus control of PZU.
"The additional focus on the PZU situation will aim to achieve a satisfactory solution for the dispute between Eureko and the Polish government. We wish to avoid protracted legal processes, which are, ultimately, in no one´s interest," adds Maarten Dijkshoorn, Eureko CEO.
Gerard van Olphen, currently Chief Financial Officer of the Group, will take over responsibility for Eureko´s international development beyond the Dutch market, including Eureko´s existing operations in eight European territories.
Roel Wijmenga, who has been a Member of the Executive Board since the merger of Achmea and Interpolis, will, from the same date, become CFO of Eureko.
The total composition of the Executive Board is unchanged and consists of Maarten Dijkshoorn (Chairman and CEO), Huub Hannen (Vice Chairman), Ernst Jansen (Vice-Chairman), Willem van Duin, Gerard van Olphen and Roel Wijmenga.
