Henk van Dalen resigns from Rabobank Supervisory Board
Henk van Dalen has informed the Supervisory Board and the Executive Board of Rabobank that he is resigning permanently from the Supervisory Board with effect from 1 April 2016. This follows the decision taken by Henk van Dalen on 6 November 2015 to step down temporarily from his supervisory role at Rabobank pending the outcome of an investigation by the Dutch Public Prosecutor’s Office into the international telecom group VimpelCom, where he had been CFO. Henk van Dalen was appointed to the Rabobank Supervisory Board in September 2013.
Henk van Dalen: “It is essential that the Rabobank Supervisory Board operates at full strength given the importance of the tasks it performs. It’s only natural to set a term for a temporary withdrawal. In my view, that term is four to five months. Which is why in the interests of Rabobank I am resigning permanently from the Supervisory Board. I am also thinking seriously and consulting with the parties concerned about my other supervisory functions, which I expect to resign in due course.”
Wout Dekker, chairman of the Supervisory Board: “We respect Henk van Dalen’s decision to step down in the interests of Rabobank and thank him for the contribution he made to the Supervisory Board of Rabobank.”
