Heineken supervisory board chairman to step down; replacement named

Dutch brewer Heineken NV said Dec. 18 that Hans Wijers will step down as chairman of the supervisory board, effective April 25, 2019, at the company's annual meeting of shareholders.

Jean-Marc Huët, who chairs the audit committee, will replace Wijers as chairman of the supervisory board. Marion Helmes will replace Huët as chairman of the audit committee beginning Jan. 1, 2019.

Wijers has been on the supervisory board since 2012 and has been chairman for six years.

Rosemary Ripley, managing director of NGEN, a private equity and venture capital firm, will also be appointed to the supervisory board at the annual meeting. Ripley has spent 25 years in consumer packaged goods, branding and technology.

Additionally, Yonca Dervisoglu will resign from the supervisory board at the conclusion of the annual meeting to focus on her other responsibilities at Alphabet Inc.'s Google.

In June, Heineken's U.S. arm appointed Maggie Timoney as its new CEO.
