Resignation of CEO

VIVAT NV (VIVAT) announces today that, by mutual agreement, Chief Executive Officer Ron van Oijen resigns from his position effective January 31, 2020. Pending the appointment of a new Chairman of the Executive Board, Maarten Dijkshoorn will be the Supervisory Board member delegate during this interim period.

Maarten Dijkshoorn, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of VIVAT: “Ron played an important role in the extensive transformation of VIVAT to become a leading, customer-focused and innovation-driven insurance company. I’d like to thank him personally, and on behalf of the Supervisory Board, for his contributions to VIVAT and wish him success in the future.”

Ron van Oijen: “It has been an honour to lead VIVAT over the last four years and I am very proud of what we have accomplished together. The announced change of ownership feels like a natural moment for me to leave the company. VIVAT is now in a solid financial position and well prepared for the future thanks to all dedicated colleagues. I am confident that VIVAT, under its new shareholder, will become an even stronger player within the Dutch insurance market.”

The closing of the acquisition of VIVAT by Athora is expected to take place in the first quarter of 2020, subject to DNB approval.
