Board member Ronald Goedmakers to depart from Vebego

12-12-2023 Vebego has announced that Ronald Goedmakers will leave the Board of Directors as of February 1, 2024.

Ronald Goedmakers has been working at Vebego since 1988, and from 2006 to 2021, he served as CEO, after which he was succeeded by his nephew, Ton Goedmakers. In 2021, he became a member of the board of directors, a position he will step down from on February 1, 2024. In October of that year, he will join the Supervisory Board.

Ton Goedmakers about the departure: “I want to thank Ronald for his vision and leadership, with which he took Vebego forward after my father handed over responsibility as a CEO to him in 2006. Ronald has made Vebego into the company it is today; a strong and international organization with nearly 40,000 colleagues, where the warmth of our family culture has remained, and where we have never lost sight of our purpose: Meaningful jobs, Great work, Better world. I am very pleased that he decided to join the Supervisory Board from October 2024, so that we still benefit from his knowledge, experience and wisdom after his resignation.”

Ronald Goedmakers himself says the following: “I am grateful for having had the opportunity to contribute to the growth and development of Vebego in the past 36 years. We have just gone through another huge and successful transition, creating a strong foundation for the future, in which I expect Vebego to continue to increase its impact and business success. It is great to see that two of my three children are now part of the third generation of the Goedmakers family within the company. For me, this is a good time to now transfer my responsibilities to the new team. I have great confidence in their leadership as well as in the commitment and enthusiasm of every member of the Vebego family.”
