Van den Bergh Nominated for Ahold Supervisory Board
Rob van den Bergh has been nominated for appointment to the supervisory board of Amsterdam-based retail conglomerate Ahold, according to the company. Van den Bergh is the former CEO of publishing and marketing information company VNU (a past owner of Progressive Grocer) and currently sits on a number of corporate boards in the Netherlands.

Pending shareholder approval, board membership as of April 20 will consist of René Dahan, chairman; Tom de Swaan vice chairman; Derk C. Doijer; Stephanie M. Shern; Judith Sprieser; Mark McGrath; Ben Noteboom; and van den Bergh.
