Heineken exec committee member to leave

29 June, 2012

Floris van Woerkom, chief control & accounting officer at Heineken has decided to leave the company by the end of the year.

Van Woerkom has agreed to remain in the role until the end of 2012 or until an appropriate succession is in place.

René Hooft Graafland, Heineken’s chief financial officer said: “I want to thank Floris for his significant contribution to our business over the last seven years. Floris’ leadership, professional knowledge and wide business experience have enabled us to improve significantly our finance organisation and processes. As a member of the executive committee, his leadership of our company-wide cost and cash initiatives has helped deliver more than EUR 1 billion in annualised cost savings and generated significant amounts of additional cash, making Heineken stronger and more competitive.”
