Lard was appointed as NN Group’s CEO in 2014. Over the years, he has done an outstanding job, leading the company through the separation from ING Group, the IPO process of NN Group, and the acquisition of Delta Lloyd and the announced acquisition of VIVAT Non-life. His drive and focus on performance, combined with his commitment to serving the long-term interests of the company, were important in shaping NN Group as the strong international player it is today. I would like to thank Lard personally, and on behalf of the Supervisory Board, the Management Board and the employees of NN Group, for his contribution to the company. We have a sound succession planning process in place and with the intended appointment of David Knibbe we have found an excellent successor from within the company. David has the right leadership skills to drive NN Group going forward. Having worked in a variety of senior management roles, David has a deep understanding and experience of our businesses, the sector, and the markets in which NN operates. He successfully led the integration of Delta Lloyd and is a dynamic, customer-focused and values-driven business leader, whose vision and execution track record will contribute to the future of NN Group.’
Lard Friese: ‘It has been a privilege to serve NN Group, and I am proud of what we together have achieved for the company, colleagues and customers. I am grateful for all the support I have received from the Supervisory Board and Management Board, from the nearly 15,000 colleagues, and from the company’s stakeholders. I congratulate David on his intended appointment. Having worked closely with him for many years, I am confident that under his leadership NN Group will continue to prosper and I wish him every success.’
David Knibbe has extensive experience in financial services and a proven track record in executive positions. David joined the asset management business of ING Group in 1997, and was later responsible for the ING International Insurance businesses. He was appointed as a member of the Management Board of NN Group and CEO of NN Netherlands in 2014. In recent years, David has played a pivotal role in the acquisition of Delta Lloyd and the announced acquisition of VIVAT Non-Life, and led the integration of the Delta Lloyd businesses into NN.
David Knibbe: ‘It is an honour to be offered the opportunity to be NN Group’s next CEO. NN is a strong international company, driven by talented people who are focused on serving our customers and creating long-term value for our stakeholders. I am fully committed to building, together with all our colleagues, on the solid foundation established under Lard’s leadership. We will continue to improve performance, by offering excellent products and services to our customers, by accelerating the transformation of our business model, and by allocating capital rationally. I would like to extend my gratitude to Lard, and wish him success in the future.’
