After a 30-year career within Van Duyn Group and later Dutch Flower Group (DFG), Henk
Salome will be resigning from his position at the end of March 2014.
Salome, 59, is currently Retail Division Director within DFG and is responsible for the eight companies in the Netherlands and UK that focus on large-scale retail, particularly supermarkets and DIY centres.
His successor will be announced early next year. DFG will be adapting its organisation at the same time, after which the current Board of Directors (Marco van Zijverden, CEO, and Harry Brockhoff, CFO) will be running the company together with an Executive Committee. This committee will consist of Marco Vermeulen (Director Wholesale), Marcel Zandvliet (Director Marketing) and a Director Retail, still to be appointed.
After his departure in March, Salome has expressed the desire to focus more on his family and consultancy activities and to expand his volunteer work. The Board of Directors is extremely grateful to Henk Salome for his important contribution to the growth of the Dutch Flower Group companies and strengthening the horticultural sector in the Netherlands.
