Amsterdam, March 10, 2017 - Arcadis (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the leading global Design & Consultancy firm for natural and built assets, today announced that it has nominated Mr. Wee Gee Ang for appointment to the company's Supervisory Board for a four-year term. The nomination will be put before shareholders for approval at the upcoming Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on April 26, 2017. Mr. Ang will fill the vacancy created by the departure of George Nethercutt, who has been on the Arcadis Supervisory Board for 12 years and is consequently not eligible for re-appointment.
Mr. Ang (54) is the Chief Executive Officer of Keppel Land Limited, a property developer based in Singapore and part of the Keppel Corporation. Prior to this role, Mr. Ang held senior management positions in the Keppel Land Group, including running the company's businesses in China, and Keppel Land's international businesses. He previously held various positions in business and project development for Keppel Land in Singapore and other overseas markets, and corporate planning in the Group's hospitality management arm.
"I am very pleased that Mr. Ang is willing to join our board," said Niek Hoek, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Arcadis. "His experience in the property development business in Asia as well as in professional services internationally, and his proven capability to develop business opportunities in Asia, will be important assets to Arcadis. Subject to shareholder approval, I look forward to welcome him to our Board. I also want to thank George Nethercutt for his contributions to Arcadis over the past 12 years. He has been a valuable member of the Supervisory Board and we all wish him well for the future."
