Pikaart Rein- cropped.jpg (128 KB)Rein Pikaart, PDN Board member representing pensioners and vice-chairman of the Board, has expressed his wish to step down from the Board before the end of his term. He will cease to be a member with effect from March 31, 2023. In the meantime, there will be a careful handover of Rein’s work at the Board as well as on the committees that he was a member of. The Board respects Rein’s decision and owes him a debt of gratitude for his hard work and commitment to the fund.

Sonneveld Arie_cropped.jpg (1.09 MB) Rein’s intended successor on the Board is Arie Sonneveld, who had previously been elected in the 2020 elections as a candidate representing pensioners. He is available and eager to fill the vacant position. Arie has embarked on a pension training course for Board members and will have gained suitability level ‘A’ in all focus areas upon assuming office. On January 23, he was appointed as a prospective General Board member and a listener at Board meetings as well as on the Investment Committee. Once he has successfully completed his training, the Board will appoint him as a Board member. His appointment will be formalized following approval by PDN’s Supervisory Board and the regulator De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB).
