Douwe van der Werf, member of the Executive Board and CFO of Grontmij N.V., has decided to leave the company. For more than five years he has successfully contributed to the development of the results of Grontmij. As per April 1 Mr Van der Werf will become CFO at Breevast B.V. Breevast is a Dutch company that invests in, develops and exploits commercial and residential real estate worldwide.

In the meantime, Sylvo Thijsen, CEO of Grontmij N.V., and Birgit W. Nørgaard, COO of Grontmij N.V./ Managing Director of Grontmij Carl Bro in Denmark, will share the tasks and responsibilities of the CFO job between them.

`I have had five great years with Grontmij. Looking back at where we were in 2003 and where Grontmij is now, I am very pleased and satisfied with the achievements. Grontmij has turned into a different company with a good and clear strategy and a solid future.

From a local Dutch player, Grontmij has become a European player. This has brought the company into a different phase which requires a different approach`, says Douwe van der Werf.

The Supervisory Board and Executive Board regret the resignation of Douwe van der Werf but are grateful for his enormous dedication to the company over the past five years and wish him every success in his new role.

grow the company to where it currently stands.`
