CFO Gosse Boon to leave Nutreco

15 April 2015

Nutreco announces that Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Gosse Boon has decided to leave the company as of 1 July 2015. The Supervisory Board understands and respects Boon's decision. A smooth transfer of responsibilities to his successor, Jeroen Wakkerman, has been ensured.

During the past period, Gosse Boon has reflected on his role and responsibilities as CFO of Nutreco which will naturally change now that the offer of SHV has been declared unconditional and the company will be delisted as per 17 April 2015.

Gosse Boon, CFO of Nutreco: "In my years as CFO of Nutreco I very much enjoyed the responsibilities related to the specific dynamics of a listed company as well as the overall leadership of the finance function. With Nutreco delisted, these particular responsibilities will cease to exist or change substantially. Accordingly, I have decided to step down as CFO. It has been a great pleasure to contribute to the design and execution of the Nutreco strategy and the continuous improvement of the Nutreco wide finance and IT processes. I sincerely would like to thank all Nutreco colleagues, my Finance team, the members of the Executive Committee and the Supervisory Board. A special word of appreciation goes to my Executive Board colleague, CEO Knut Nesse". 

Piero Overmars, Chairman of the Supervisory Board: "We want to thank Gosse for his contribution and commitment to Nutreco over the past five years, including his involvement in the successful transaction with SHV, his contribution to the "Feeding the Future strategy", as well as his drive for excellence in Finance and IT. In view of the new phase which Nutreco is entering into and the change this brings to his role and responsibilities as CFO, we understand and respect Gosse's decision."

Gosse Boon and the Supervisory Board have ensured a smooth transfer of responsibilities. He will continue his responsibilities until 1 July 2015 and take care of the hand-over to his successor, Jeroen Wakkerman, who is currently CFO at SHV Energy.
