Losberger De Boer has announced that Arnout de Hair, currently chief operations officer, will be appointed its new CEO. De Hair will take on the role on 1 February 2018. He will succeed Berndt Zoepffel who will be stepping down as CEO and will be joining the supervisory board of directors of the company.
“Losberger De Boer has undergone an impressive development under the leadership of Berndt Zoepffel since he joined the company in 1996,” the company said.
The merger with De Boer Structures in May of 2017 was an important milestone in a period of strong internal and external growth.
“The merger between Losberger and De Boer is a major step in becoming a leading provider in temporary space solutions and we are on the threshold of a new phase in the further development of our company,” the supervisory board of directors said in a statement.
“We came to the conclusion that in the coming years, strong emphasis will be placed on the further integration of the various companies that were acquired during the last few years to fully benefit from all the available capabilities. Arnout de Hair has shown strong leadership during the transition of De Boer into a strong and profitable company. We are convinced that with him we have a very good candidate to fulfil that future role at Losberger De Boer.”
Peter Rijkoort, current chairman of the supervisory board of directors of the Losberger De Boer Group, will be appointed chief operating officer of Losberger De Boer, effective 1 February 2018. Rijkoort will then step down from his position in the supervisory board of directors.
