Alfen’s EGM appoints Eline Oudenbroek and Willem Ackermans as members of the Supervisory Board

Alfen N.V. (“Alfen”) announces that its Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) has today appointed Eline Oudenbroek and Willem Ackermans as members of Alfen’s Supervisory Board for respectively a three-year and four-year term.

Having served as Supervisory Board members for more than two years since Alfen’s IPO in March 2018, both Erwin Riefel and Edmond van der Arend have stepped down. This is in line with the arrangements in the relationship agreement between Alfen and Infestos, as previously disclosed, which terminated once Infestos sold down its shareholding position in Alfen to under 15% earlier this year. 

“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to both Erwin Riefel and Edmond Van Der Arend for their commitment and valuable contributions during a period of strong growth” said Henk ten Hove, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Alfen. “I wish them all the best for the future. I am of the opinion that the new members have the right qualification to join the Supervisory Board of the Company. They have both a broad international business experience and dealt with stakeholder management in various supervisory and advisory board positions. I consider them strong candidates with competences complementary to each other and to the Chairman.”

With the appointment of Eline Oudenbroek and Willem Ackermans, Alfen’s Supervisory Board will be fully independent.
