TomTom is nominating Derk Haank to become the new Chairman of its Supervisory Board which it will put to an Extraordinary General Meeting in September 2018.
The mapping, satnav and traffic information company says Haank has thirty years’ experience in the academic publishing industry, with experience of migrating content from print to digital, re-inventing the academic book market in that process.
“We are delighted that Derk has agreed to join us,” said Peter Wakkie, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of TomTom. “In Derk, we have found a highly qualified successor as Chairman and member of our Board. We particularly value his wealth of experience in driving transformations and new business models.”
Harold Goddijn, CEO of TomTom, added, “Derk is a proven leader in developing and implementing transformational business and growth strategies. We are excited to work with him and to benefit from his experience.”
