Facilicom Group has announced that on 17 September 2018 Mrs T.C.L.A. Bouvy-van Boxtel will be appointed Chief Financial Officer (CFO). She will succeed Mr J. Lensveld, who will be leaving the organisation after a period of 20 years as CFO.

Maartje Bouvy (46) studied Business at Nyenrode University and then Economics and Law at VU University Amsterdam. She also successfully graduated from the Executive Master in Finance & Control programme at Erasmus University Rotterdam. She began her career at Unilever, where she held various financial positions.

An excellent successor

Hans Gennissen, Chairman of the Board of Facilicom Group, said on this appointment: ‘Maartje Bouvy is an excellent successor to Jan Lensveld who, in the 20 years that he was responsible as CFO, has helped in the substantial growth and professionalisation of Facilicom. Jan has indicated that he wishes to take early retirement. And of course we want to respect his wishes.’

Establishing connections

Geert van de Laar, CEO of Facilicom Group: ‘I am looking forward to welcoming Maartje as new CFO to our Group Management Board team and as member of the Governing Board. In addition to the ‘traditional’ CFO tasks, Maartje will also be responsible for IT, where major challenges are expected in the coming years. In the discussions we have had so far, I recognise a strong drive in Maartje to elevate Finance and IT to the next level, while at the same time I see an amiable person who knows how to engage with people.’

Maartje Bouvy on this step in her career: ‘From Home and Personal Care with Rituals to Care for People with Facilicom. A fine, healthy family company with proud employees; I look forward to working for this company and with these people.’
