New Management Board composition at Eurocommercial

From November 1, 2020, Evert Jan van Garderen will succeed Jeremy Lewis as Chief Executive Officer of the Company following his retirement. Director and Board Member Roberto Fraticelli will succeed van Garderen as Chief Financial Officer.

Director and Board Member Peter Mills is Chief Investment Officer. Bas Steins Bisschop, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Eurocommercial, said: “Eurocommercial was founded by Jeremy Lewis in 1991 and was originally co-listed in Sydney and Amsterdam. Under Jeremy’s leadership, the Company became an independent, listed property investment company, which initially invested in a broad range of assets and countries before successfully concentrating on shopping centers in four countries.

These were well-timed shifts in focus, anticipating changes in the market. On behalf of the Supervisory and Management Boards, and also on behalf of all members of the Eurocommercial family, I would like to thank Jeremy for his invaluable contribution to the success of the Company.

I congratulate Evert Jan van Garderen on his appointment as the new CEO of Eurocommercial. Evert Jan is a worthy successor with an impressive and long career with the Company.”
