Roelof Joosten appointed member of Achmea’s Supervisory Board

Achmea’s AGM has appointed Roelof Joosten as member of the Supervisory Board. He succeeds Antoon Vermeer, who retired from his position last year at the end of his maximum term of office. Joosten’s appointment is for a period of four years and has been approved by the Dutch Central Bank (DNB).

Between June 2015 and January 2018, Roelof Joosten was Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of FrieslandCampina. He joined the dairy business in 2004 and became a member of its Executive Board in 2012. Joosten studied chemical technology in Groningen. After graduating, he began his career at Unilever, where he worked for almost 15 years before moving to Quest in 1998. Unilever had sold Quest, a producer of fragrances and flavourings, to the British ICI shortly before Joosten joined.
