People: Hydratec appoints new CEO

Hydratec Industries NV has announced that Bart Aangenendt, CEO of subsidiary company Pas Reform, will succeed the Group’s CEO Roland Zoomers, when he steps down later this year.

Bart Aangenendt will succeed Roland Zoomers when he retires in September this year. Harm Langen, currently managing director of LAN Handling Systems, another Hydratec subsidiary, will replace Mr Aangenendt as CEO of Pas Reform.

Under Aangenendt’s leadership since 1999, Pas Reform Hatchery Technologies has succeeded in developing its position as a market-leading innovator for the poultry sector worldwide. The company became a subsidiary of Hydratec in 2011, with Aangenendt joining the Company’s executive management board in 2012.

Mr Egbert ten Cate, Chairman of Hydratec’s Supervisory Board, thanked outgoing CEO Roland Zoomers for his commitment and management of the Group for the past 11 years: “Roland has provided inspirational leadership at the helm of Hydratec Industries, not only in overseeing the management of the Group, but also in steering the development of each of our operating companies to deliver dynamic growth,” he said.

Speaking about Mr Aangenendt’s appointment, ten Cate continued: “Under Bart’s direction, Pas Reform has achieved exceptional growth and reputation in the poultry sector worldwide. “We are delighted that he has accepted this new challenge as CEO of the whole Hydratec Group.”
