Accell Group N.V. announced that by mutual consent Jeroen Both has stepped down as chief supply chain officer (CSCO) and member of its Board of Management. Both will leave Accell Group at the end of December 2021.

The Supervisory Board has initiated the search for a successor who will be responsible for the further development of Accell Group’s supply chain and operations.

“Jeroen has been instrumental in setting up and bringing the organization of our supply chain and operations to where it stands today. He has done this with great passion and commitment,” said Rob Ter Haar, chairman, Supervisory Board, Accell Group. “We are grateful to Jeroen for his significant contribution and dedication to Accell Group for many years. Jeroen leaves Accell with a strong platform from which to accelerate and further grow. On behalf of all at Accell Group, we wish Jeroen all the best in his future endeavors.”

Both said, “After six years as CSCO and having been in charge of and managing Accell Group’s central supply chain organization, this is a logical moment to hand over my tasks. I am proud of all our accomplishments as a team, which have enabled Accell to substantially better leverage its scale over the past few years. I want to thank all of my colleagues as well as our suppliers. It was a privilege to work with them, and I will pass on the torch in full confidence.”

Until a successor is appointed, Ton Anbeek, CEO, Accell Group, will take on the CSCO responsibilities.
