Mrs. A. (Anja) H.

She fulfilled various national and international leadership positions, amongst others as managing partner of the Resources practice in the Benelux and France and as country managing director of Accenture in the Netherlands, and she was a member of the Accenture Global Leadership Council. The Supervisory Board nominates Anja Montijn because of her extensive knowledge and experience in consultancy services, IT implementation processes, organisation strategy and design and change management, with a strong focus on the energy markets.

As a result of the resignations in 2014 of Mrs. Marion Helmes and Mr. Gert-Jan Kramer there are two vacancies in the Supervisory Board.

Following the intended appointments, the Supervisory Board will again consist of six members (in line with the Supervisory Board regulation), being Harrie Noy (chairman), Maarten Schönfeld (vice-chairman), Antonio Campo, Petri Hofsté, Anja Montijn and Douglas Wall. The composition of the Board will be in compliance with the Dutch legal requirement of 30% females.
