The NRCC Board of Directors appointed as its new President Mr. Gerke Witteveen, CFO of NN Life Insurance, a longstanding member of the NRCC. Gerke Witteveen (42) has extensive experience in international business, particularly in Finance and Risk Management roles in the insurance industry. He joined NN Life Insurance in Romania as CFO in November 2016. Prior to joining NN, he worked for 11 years with Achmea, another leading Dutch insurance company. He previously worked in Romania from 2008 until 2013, as CFO for Achmea’s subsidiary Eureko/Interamerican.

Gerke Witteveen took over the mandate from Sebastiaan van Hese, director of Fokker Engineering Romania, now heading towards a new career opportunity: managing Fokker's operations in USA.

"My objective is to build on the great work done by the NRCC in the past years. This means expanding the NRCC network, amongst others by connecting with other business communities. The aim is to facilitate new opportunities for cooperation and to create the most effective platform possible, supporting the interests of our members. " declares Gerke Witteveen.

Maurits Dohmen, NRCC Executive Director: "in 2016, NRCC reached important milestones, laying a stronger foundation for our ambitious plans in the near future: becoming a relevant and active platform of business matchmaking at national level, but also outside Romania's borders. The NRCC Board of Directors would like to thank Bas van Hese for his tirelessly efforts in developing our community further and growing our presence on a national level.”

Sebastiaan van Hese says: "I am very happy to be succeeded by an outstanding businessman, well-known in the Dutch-Romanian business community. The NRCC has never been bigger and more active than right at this moment and I am confident that Gerke, together with the executive team and the board of directors, will continue the successful journey we have embarked upon some years ago, in order for the NRCC to keep increasing the value for our members "
