At the end of this year, it is time for me to retire as CEO of the Royal Peterson Control Union Group.
38 years ago I started as a trainee at Peterson Rotterdam and while that first day feels like it was only yesterday, at the same time, I recognise that so much has happened since, and I feel privileged to have had the experiences I have.
It is a great pleasure for me to announce that Johan Maris has been selected as my successor following a very diligent selection process by the Royal Peterson Control Union Group Board.
Johan joined our group in 2002 when we started our certification business and is currently also a member of our Group Management Team.
Johan will formally take over as CEO on January 1st, 2022.
Rene van Rijst
