Bunnik, the Netherlands, 3 March 2020 – The Supervisory Board of Royal BAM Group nv intends to nominate Mr H.Th.E.M. (Henk) Rottinghuis for appointment to the Supervisory Board. This will take place at the Annual General Meeting of shareholders on 15 April 2020 for a period ending with the Annual General Meeting in 2024. Additionally, Mr H.L.J. (Harrie) Noy will be nominated for re-appointment as a member of the Supervisory Board for a period which will end at the Annual General Meeting in 2021.
Mr Rottinghuis (Dutch, 1956) served as CEO and chairman of the Executive Board of Pon Holdings from 2001 until his retirement in 2010.

Currently, he is non-executive director at the building materials business CRH (until April 2020) and chairman of the Supervisory Board of Koole Terminals.
The nomination of Mr Rottinghuis relates to the planned retirement of Mr Noy as chairman of the Supervisory Board and the intention of the Supervisory Board to appoint Mr Rottinghuis as his successor in the course of this year. BAM’s Central Works Council has announced, under its reinforced right of recommendation, that it wishes to recommend Mr Rottinghuis as a candidate for appointment to the Supervisory Board.
To ensure a smooth transfer of responsibilities as chairman of the Supervisory Board from Mr Noy to Mr Rottinghuis in the course of 2020, the Supervisory Board also intends to nominate Mr Noy for re-appointment as a member of the Supervisory Board by the General Meeting on 15 April 2020, for a period which will end at the Annual General Meeting in 2021.
