Heemskerk fresh & easy is adjusting its management structure to get ready for the next phase. "Over the past few years, the company has grown rapidly, invested heavily and the ambition to make healthy food tasty and easy remains undiminished. The importance of fruit and vegetables and the role of plant-based food will become increasingly important in the future. The company wants to continue to respond to this. At the same time, Heemskerk sees growth changing shape as a result of all market developments. The company therefore believes that a different management structure is needed to take the right next steps for the company to be 'fit for the future'," it said in a press release.
Cor Heemskerk, Managing Director, is stepping down from the board and will be and remain closely involved with Heemskerk as owner. Jantine Heemskerk will take over his role as Managing Director. A replacement will be sought for her duties as Commercial Director. Peter van Duijvenbode has indicated that after 10 successful years, including 6.5 years as Operational Director, he wants to seek his challenge outside Heemskerk during 2023. "After his enormous efforts for Heemskerk, realising the new building and completing large automation and robotisation projects, it is time for him for something new." Carlos Musters will stay on as (Interim) Finance Director for the time being.
"The upcoming period will be dominated by implementing the above changes and ensuring the right replacement. Heemskerk is confident that this step will take the company forward and make it 'fit for the future', together with an inspired and expert team, reliable suppliers and valued customers."
