Both members of the Board of Management will remain members of the modified EC, as will the directors of HR, IT, International & Growth and Parcels & Logistics. New will be the introduction of one director responsible for Netherlands Mail (a director Production and director Commerce currently share this responsibility) and the creation of a new EC position for the Channels & Consumers business unit. This new role will create a more explicit focus on consumers along with more effective omni-channel customer services.
In light of these changes and after consulting closely with the Board of Management, Gerrit Mastenbroek has decided to retire and Albert Rodenboog will be appointed consultant to the Board of Management as per 1 July 2017. We are in discussion with Roger Muys about the termination of his employment. In the new composition of the EC, Resi Becker is the proposed director of Mail in the Netherlands and Liesbeth Kaashoek the proposed director of Parcels & Logistics. Arno van Bijnen will be appointed as director of Channels & Consumers and we intend appointing Bob van Ierland as HR director. Pim Berendsen will remain responsible within the EC for International & Growth and Marcel Krom will remain in charge of IT. The relevant proposed decisions will be submitted to the employee representative bodies.
