Maureen Schlejen new chair of the board of Achmea Investment Management
Maureen Schlejen has been appointed as divisional chair of Achmea Investment Management as of today. She succeeds Jacob de Wit, who will hand over his duties to Maureen in the fourth quarter.
Maureen Schlejen has extensive experience in fiduciary management, investment management and asset management and in-depth knowledge of the industry. Until recently, she was Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) and a partner at Actiam. Prior to that, she held various management positions at NN Investment Partners and Robeco.
Daphne de Kluis, member of Achmea’s Executive Board: “Jacob started at Achmea IM in February 2016, just after it had been set up. Since then, he has made a significant contribution to the successful growth of this business unit. We are very grateful to him for this. We are very pleased with Maureen’s appointment. In her previous positions, she has successfully implemented major transitions and change processes, due in part to her engagement skills and customer-focused and innovative approach. We welcome Maureen to Achmea and wish her every success and pleasure in her new position.”
Jacob de Wit commented on his decision to step down: “I look back on a great period of almost eight years during which I have been fully committed to Achmea IM and our customers. The approaching implementation of the new operating model and the Future Pensions Act make this a natural moment for me to pass the baton to Maureen. I will miss this job enormously but, on the other hand, I am aiming very consciously for a different work-life balance for the coming period.”
