Nooteboom appoints new Chair

Henk Riemens, Chair of the Supervisory Board of Nooteboom Trailers, is retiring after 21 years of service.

Riemens served the last 13 years of his career at Nooteboom as Chair.

Ron Deelen is set to succeed Riemens and brings automotive general management expertise to the business along with  strategic, commercial and organisational experience.

Deelen began his career at DAF Trucks, then Nedschroef after which he held board positions at various large industrial companies. He is currently CEO of British Steel.

The three-headed Supervisory Board of Nooteboom Trailers also includes Maurice Geraets (director of NXP semiconductors) and Frans Maarse (CEO Van Bilsen Group).

The knowledge and experience of the Supervisory Board members, according to the OEM, provides important support for the successful implementation of the strategy that Nooteboom has outlined for the coming years. Product innovation, new production techniques, digitisation and strengthening business operations play an important role in this.

“We thank Henk Riemens for his great contribution to Nooteboom Trailers and look forward to working with Ron Deelen as chairman of the Supervisory Board,” said Nooteboom General Manager, Marinka Nooteboom.
