Jack Stahl has decided to step down from the supervisory board of Zandaam, Netherlands-based retail conglomerate Ahold Delhaize, citing business-related commitments in the United States.
A member of the board since July 2016, Stahl was chairman of the audit, finance and risk committee and a member of the governance and nomination committee. Before the Ahold-Delhaize merger last year, he had been a member of Delhaize Group’s supervisory board since 2008. His highly successful business career includes stints as the president and COO of The Coca-Cola Co. and CEO and president of Revlon.
“Jack has been a committed and valued supervisory board member, first at Delhaize Group and, after the merger, at Ahold Delhaize,” noted Mats Jansson, the board’s chairman. “A veteran of the consumer goods industry, Jack played a key role throughout the merger process and in shaping Ahold Delhaize. I would like to thank him for his continued support and efforts. The supervisory board will miss his professionalism, dedication, insight and sense of humor."
Board member René Hooft Graafland, former CFO and member of the executive board of Heineken N.V., will take over Stahl's duties as chairman of the audit, finance and risk committee.
