Nutreco has stated that Frank Tielens, executive vice-president specialties division and member of the executive board of Nutreco, will relinquish his position with effect from 1 March 2011.
To win greater benefit from the knowledge and experience in each of the agriculture and specialties divisions of Nutreco, and gain from the potential synergies, it has been decided to merge them into one new global animal nutrition.
The members of the supervisory board and his colleagues in the executive board have expressed gratitude to Frank Tielens for his contributions to the organisation’s success and his focus on innovation.
Jerry Vergeer, until now the executive vice-president for the agriculture division, has been appointed as chief operating officer of animal nutrition.
As from 1 March 2011 the executive board of Nutreco N.V. will consist of Wout Dekker (chief executive officer), Cees van Rijn (chief financial officer), Jerry Vergeer (chief operating officer of animal nutrition) and Knut Nesse (chief operating officer of aquaculture).
