OctoPlus appoints Susan Swarte as Chief Financial Officer

The Netherlands | Posted on June 29th, 2009

At the next general meeting of shareholders the Board of Supervisory Directors will propose to appoint Mrs. Swarte as member of the Executive Board for a period of four years. After approval of the shareholders, OctoPlus' Executive Board will consist of Chief Executive Officer Simon Sturge, Chief Financial Officer Susan Swarte, Chief Scientific Officer Joost Holthuis and Chief Business Officer Gerben Moolhuizen.

Susan Swarte (1968) has over 16 years of experience in financial and strategic management. She worked at Unilever and Numico (now Danone), two large, international and publicly listed companies, where she was responsible for financial, logistic and reporting aspects. At Numico she professionalised the finance function in China and most recently she was responsible for all financial aspects of the export business of Danone Baby Nutrition as Finance Director, Global Export.

"We are delighted with the appointment of Susan Swarte," comments Simon Sturge, CEO of OctoPlus. "The Supervisory Board of Directors has nominated Mrs. Swarte based on her international experience and excellent track record in the broad financial management of large public companies. She knows the financial aspects of companies operating large manufacturing facilities inside out and we believe her expertise will greatly benefit OctoPlus. We look forward to welcoming her in Leiden."
