Dirk Tirez, CEO bpost group, says: "I want to very explicitly thank Leen for her efforts over the past two years and I wish her every success in her further career. I have every confidence in the Finance Team to support the growth of bpost group and ensure business continuity ahead of the appointment of a new CFO. We are ready to tackle our number one priority over the coming months, which is managing the end-of-year peak efficiently. In the meantime we continue to invest in our transformation in order to confirm our position as a valuable, future-proof e-commerce logistics partner for customers, citizens and employees.”
Leen Geirnaerdt will leave the company in mid-November. Headhunter Russell Reynolds has been brought in to search for a new group CFO who will further support the ongoing transformation and bring costs into line with the industry benchmark. The Remuneration and Nomination Committee will ensure the search moves forward in the right way and will assess later this month the shortlist for a new CFO who will contribute to the transformation in line with the expectations of the market. In the meantime, the full Financial Team reporting to Leen will ensure the continuity of the business.
