Danny van der Eijk to leave the Achmea Executive Board

Danny van der Eijk, 56, will no longer be on the Achmea Executive Board. The Supervisory Board and Van der Eijk have mutually agreed that Van der Eijk will be resigning from this position. The Supervisory Board is currently contemplating his succession and expects to make an announcement on this shortly.

Early this year, Van der Eijk announced that he would be taking a three-month sabbatical. During this leave, talks were held between him and the Supervisory Board. They jointly decided that Van der Eijk would resign as a member of the Executive Board.

Insurance man
Board Chairman Willem van Duin comments, “With Danny’s departure, the Executive Board is losing a highly knowledgeable and driven colleague. He is an insurance man in heart and soul, who knows the market and products and feels a close connection to our customers. We are grateful for everything he has done for Achmea.”

Danny van der Eijk joined Royal & Sun Alliance in 1984. That company was sold to Achmea in 2002 and Van der Eijk joined Achmea. He has held a variety of management positions, including Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of Avéro Achmea, Chairman of the Board of Achmea Bedrijven and Chairman of the Board of Centraal Beheer Achmea. Van der Eijk became a member of the Achmea Executive Board in 2008.
