VolkerWessels proposes to appoint Mr. Frank Verhoeven as member of the Supervisory Board and Mr. Alan Robertson as member of the Management Board
The Supervisory Board of Koninklijke VolkerWessels N.V. (“VolkerWessels” or the “Company”), a listed market-leading, multi-branded construction company based in the Netherlands, proposes to appoint Mr. Frank Verhoeven as member of the Supervisory Board and Mr. Alan Robertson as member of the Management Board after the Annual General Meeting of 3 May 2018. Both appointments will be for a term of four years.
Composition Supervisory Board
The Supervisory Board of VolkerWessels proposes to appoint Mr. Frank Verhoeven as member of the Supervisory Board of VolkerWessels. Due to the passing of Mr. D. Wessels on 21 November 2017 the Supervisory Board consists of four members. In consultation with Reggeborgh the proposal is to fill this position with an independent member.
The appointment of Mr. Verhoeven will be put forward for approval at the Company’s AGM on 3 May 2018. Mr. Verhoeven last served on the Board of Management of Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (retired May 2016) and brings a wealth of operational experience in project organisations and knowledge with respect to the construction industry. With the appointment of Mr. Verhoeven, the Supervisory Board will consist of three independent members and two dependent members.
Following the appointment of Mr. Verhoeven, the composition of the Supervisory Board is as follows:
- Jan Hommen, Chairman
- Henry Holterman, Vice-Chairman
- Sietze Hepkema
- René Kuipers
- Frank Verhoeven
Composition Management Board

The appointment of Mr. Robertson will be put forward for discussion at the Company’s AGM on 3 May 2018. Mr. Robertson is currently responsible for the UK activities of VolkerWessels, a responsibility which he will continue to hold going forward. This enhanced set-up of the Management Board better reflects the significant importance of the UK segment and allows VolkerWessels to benefit in a broader way from the (international) experience of Mr. Robertson. It also enables Mr. Alfred Vos (COO) to focus more on his role as COO.
Following the appointment of Mr. Robertson, the composition of the Management Board is as follows:
- Jan de Ruiter, Chairman
- Jan van Rooijen, CFO
- Alfred Vos, COO and responsible for North America, Germany and Energy & Telecoms Infrastructure
