The Supervisory Board of Enexis Group announces the departure of CEO Evert den Boer from Enexis Group. Evert has not been working since April this year due to health problems. Unfortunately, the period of rest has not yet led to the desired recovery. To ensure continuity for Enexis, Evert den Boer and the Supervisory Board have agreed in consultation that Evert will not return to his role as CEO. This gives Evert time and space to continue his recovery, while the Supervisory Board can start the process of searching for a successor. Evert has been CEO of Enexis since September 2020.
The Supervisory Board thanks Evert for the way he has led Enexis over the past three years. Jos Nijhuis, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Enexis Group: “Under Evert’s leadership, a new strategy was drawn up that puts Enexis in a position to meet the challenges of the energy transition. Besides that, together with his colleagues on the Board of Directors, Evert made great strides in the cultural change within Enexis. This is helping the organisation to increase its ability to deliver."
Evert is pleased that he was able to contribute to the development of Enexis “"I am proud of the past three years during which I had the privilege of leading Enexis as CEO. The energy transition is bringing unprecedented and complex challenges to Enexis, and these require strong and visible leadership. Unfortunately, due to my health situation, I cannot offer enough of this at the moment and must focus entirely on my recovery. I have therefore decided to step down as CEO."
Both the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board are sorry that Evert is leaving for health reasons. Jos Nijhuis: “It is obviously very disappointing for Evert in the first place. Fortunately, he is expected to make a full recovery eventually. We are going to miss Evert for who he is: a likeable and inspiring person. I would like to thank him for his commitment to Enexis and the energy transition. I wish him all the time and space necessary to get well again.”
As CFO, Mariëlle Vogt will continue to deputise in Evert den Boer’s role as Chairman of the Board and CEO.
