Mirjam Verhoeven will join Volksbank NV's board of directors as COO, effective May 9.
In late 2018, the Dutch lender's supervisory board announced its intention to appoint Verhoeven to the board. Verhoeven was initially expected to assume the role Jan. 1, 2019.
The appointment has received approval from the works council, regulatory authorities and shareholders, the bank said May 10.
Verhoeven, who was previously chief information officer at the bank, replaces Alexander Baas, who stepped down from the board to focus on the role of director of customers, payments and savings.
Separately, Volksbank appointed Jos van Lange as a member of its supervisory board and that of de Volksholding BV.
