Piet van der Slikke has been leading IMCD's management as of 1995, joined by Hans Kooijmans in 1996. Following IMCD's IPO in 2014, both were appointed as member of the Management Board for a term of four years, which expires at end of the AGM in 2018. Under their management IMCD has successfully grown to become a global leader in the sales, marketing and distribution of speciality chemicals and food ingredients.
In addition, the Supervisory Board of IMCD N.V. nominated Mr Michel Plantevin and Mr Arjan Kaaks for re-appointment as members of the Supervisory Board at the next AGM in 2018. Their contribution continues to be of great value to IMCD.
Michel Plantevin was first appointed in 2011 and reappointed in 2014. He currently serves as chairman of the Supervisory Board and member of the Remuneration Committee. The Supervisory Board now nominates him to be appointed for a third term of one year.
Mr Kaaks was first appointed in 2015 to fill the vacancy that arose following the decease of Mr Floris Waller. He was appointed for the remaining term of office until 2018 and is now nominated to be appointed for a second term of four years. Arjan Kaaks currently serves as vice-chairman of the Supervisory Board and chairman of the Audit Committee.
Mr Jean-Charles Pauze informed the Supervisory Board that due to personal reasons he will not seek re-appointment after expiration of his term of office this year. IMCD is very grateful for his contribution and dedication to IMCD over the past four years. The Supervisory Board nominates Mr Stephan Nanninga to fill the vacancy in the Supervisory Board arising from Jean-Charles Pauze's resignation.
