Supervisory Board

Our Supervisory Board consists of the following members:

Joanne Kellermann, chair
Petra van Hoeken
Toon van der Klugt
Frida van den Maagdenberg
Annette Ottolini
Manfred Schepers

The members of the Supervisory Board are appointed by the General Meeting on the recommendation of the board. Two of the board members are subject to a right of recommendation of the shareholder water authorities. Candidates must meet several criteria to be appointed or reappointed. These criteria are outlined in the overall profile of the Supervisory Board.

A board member’s appointment lasts four years. Subsequently, that board member can be reappointed once for a period of four years. A second reappointment (of two years) is only possible under exceptional circumstances. In the AGM of 15 April 2021 Maurice Oostendorp stepped down as board member having reached his maximum term of office of eight years. The Supervisory Board expects the appointment of a new board member to take place in 2021 at a time yet to be determined. The rotation schedule of the Supervisory Board lists the year in which current members of the board were reappointed or are scheduled to step down.

The Supervisory Board performs its duties in accordance with the Supervisory Board Charter. It contains rules governing the board’s functioning and internal organisation. It also contains provisions governing the board’s dealings with the Executive Committee and shareholders, as well as (potential) conflicts of interest. By adopting the charter, we are also adhering to the applicable legal provisions, the Dutch Corporate Governance Code, the Dutch Banking Code and the Code of Conduct.
