Hessel Dikkers is leaving SNS REAAL with effect from December 31, 2011, and is therefore stepping back as Chief Information Officer (CIO) and as member of the Management Committee of SNS REAAL.
Following the appointment of Wim Henk Steenpoorte as Chief Technology Officer to the Executive Board of SNS REAAL with effect from September 15, 2011 and the functional division in the Executive Board, the position of Hessel Dikkers became superfluous. For this reason, SNS REAAL and Hessel Dikkers have decided, in close consultation, to part ways.
Ronald Latenstein, Chairman of the Executive Board of SNS REAAL: "I would like to thank Hessel for the good results he has achieved, especially with respect to the merger and continued close cooperation of the various ICT organizations into one IT & Change for the whole of SNS REAAL.
"Hessel was also an important driving force behind the rollout of the New World of Work (HNW) at SNS REAAL. I wish Hessel all the best in his new job."
Dikkers started his career at SNS REAAL in 2008 as member of the Board of SNS Bank.
