Financial services company ING has announced it will nominate Lodewijk Hijmans van den Bergh to its supervisory board at the company AGM in April.
Van den Bergh is a former partner at the law firm De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek. He previously served as chief corporate governance counsel and member of the executive board of retailer Royal Ahold. He is currently chair of the supervisory board of BE Semiconductor Industries, non-executive chair of the supervisory board of Fortino Capital Partners and as vice-chair of the supervisory board of HAL Holding.
The proposed appointment has been approved by the European Central Bank.
ING also proposes to reappoint Margarete Haase and Hans Wijers for a further term of four years as members of the supervisory board. They were both first appointed in 2017.
Jan Peter Balkenende has announced his intention to retire from the board at the end of the AGM to focus on other activities.
