Vebego is fully owned by the Goedmakers family. Therefore, the Dutch Corporate Governance Code does not apply to us. Nevertheless, we take ‘good governance’ extremely seriously, but in our own way. That individuality can be seen in our Code. It contains provisions from the Corporate Governance Code, but also incorporates provisions that are related to the family-based and international character of Vebego.
Vebego's vision of sustainability and our mission to increase our social impact are expressly endorsed in our Code. That mission goes beyond taking social responsibility and reducing the negative impact of our business operations on society.
Vebego wants to materially contribute to a better world. Important principles in this are continually building sustainable relationships, both with our internal and external stakeholders and the continuity as a family business that strives for long-term value creation.
Vebego is managed by the Board of Directors, consisting of Ton Goedmakers (CEO) and Ronald Goedmakers (member, temporarily taking over the duties of the CFO, including risk, compliance, governance and IT).
Responsibility for the day-to-day management of Vebego lies with the Executive Board, which is comprised of the Board of Directors and five other members. These are Giuseppe Santagada (COO for Germany and Switzerland), Mark van Haasteren (COO for Belgium and the Netherlands), Niel Cortenraad (CSO) and Peter van Montfort (CHRO, including leadership, meaningful work and talent management). During 2022 a new CFO and CHRO will be appointed; the desire for more diversity within the Executive Board will be expressly taken into account here.
The Supervisory Board is a sounding board and advisor to the Board of Directors. In addition, the Supervisory Board supervises the policy of the Board of Directors and the general running of the company in its entirety.
Vebego's Supervisory Board has five members: Pamela Boumeester (Chair), Willem Cramer, Ton Goedmakers Snr, Jan van Hoek and Loes van Rijsoort.
