Nutreco CEO announces retirement
Nutreco chief executive officer Rob Koremans has announced that he will be retiring from his role this summer after leading the company for the past three years, Nutreco announced last month.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of Nutreco and supporting the company in living its purpose of Feeding the Future," said Koremans. "It's been a privilege to work with so many passionate and motivated people, both within the company and in the industry."
With effect from August 15, 2021, Fulco van Lede will join Nutreco as CEO.
Van Lede was appointed as a member of the executive board of directors of SHV on July 1, 2018, after having served in different positions in Makro and SHV Energy. He eventually served as CEO of the SHV Energy Board. He has played an important role in supporting the SHV Groups and in further defining a sustainable future for SHV.
After August 15, Koremans will stay on in the company until the end of the year as an advisor to the Nutreco Executive Leadership Team to ensure a smooth transition and facilitate the startup of a new fundamental research unit that will develop and introduce unique proprietary products, such as feed additives and specialty ingredients.
SHV CEO Jeroen Drost said: "We want to thank Rob for leading Nutreco for the last three years and we wish him all the best in the future. In Fulco, we have a worthy successor to lead the company in its next phase of growth."
