New governance structure, new CEO

20 June 2017

On June 20, 2017 A.Hak has introduced a two-tier governance model, consisting of an Executive Board and a Supervisory Board. Iain Light has been appointed CEO of the company. Marco and Mariska van Geenhuizen, members of the current management, will take a seat in the Supervisory Board, together with Régis Rivière. A.Hak remains a family-owned company with the Van Geenhuizen family as its shareholders.

In recent years, A.Hak has faced challenging market conditions, especially in the oil and gas industry, along with many other companies in our industry. This led to a negative result in 2015. In 2016 A.Hak initiated a process of organizational development. In 2016 and 2017, the company has been able to produce improving results, partly because of these efforts.

"With the change in governance structure we feel we can accelerate this improvement", say Marco and Mariska van Geenhuizen. "Since the beginning of 2017, we have been working with Iain Light on a long term strategy for A.Hak. We are fully confident that he will take the next step in the professional development of the organization, together with his Executive Board, our staff and the management of the A.Hak business units.”

New Executive Board
Iain Light has worked in the testing, inspection, and certification business for all his professional life. Drawing from this experience, he is very well introduced in A.Hak’s main markets. Until the end of 2015, Light worked in the Netherlands as CEO of Applus RTD, a service provider in the field of non-destructive testing, inspection and certification, serving mainly the pipeline industry. Light comes from the UK.CFO Remco Smit and CHRO Rob Bombeeck will be the other members of A.Hak’s Executive Board.
