TomTom nominates Maaike Schipperheijn as new Supervisory Board Member

Amsterdam, Netherlands, 4 March 2024, TomTom (TOM2), the location technology specialist, today announced that Maaike Schipperheijn has been nominated for appointment to the TomTom Supervisory Board for a term of four years, effective as of 17 April 2024.

Maaike Schipperheijn (1975, Dutch) served as CFO of two large, private equity-owned companies and was Supervisory Board member and Chair of the Audit Committee at formerly listed Beter Bed Holding NV. Maaike was most recently CFO of Royal Reesink, a large equipment distribution company serving the agriculture, construction, and logistic industries globally. Prior to joining Royal Reesink, Maaike was CFO of Euroports, a global operator of port terminals, and held various leadership positions at Shell in Russia, the Middle East, and the Netherlands.

Maaike holds a Master’s Degree in Business Economics from Maastricht University, and has been registered as a Chartered Public Accountant since 2002.

“We are pleased and excited to propose Maaike for appointment to the Supervisory Board,” said Derk Haank, Chairman of the TomTom Supervisory Board. “Maaike brings a wealth of financial knowledge and experience in leading large transformations to TomTom. With the appointment of Maaike, we are confident that we ensured the succession planning of the Supervisory Board. I am certain that Maaike will be of great benefit to the functioning of the Supervisory Board, and the Audit Committee in particular.”

“We are looking forward to Maaike’s appointment. She has an impressive track record and I’m confident her experience and insights will contribute in a meaningful way to TomTom’s sustainable long-term value creation capabilities.” said Harold Goddijn, CEO of TomTom.

Maaike’s appointment will be effective as of the date of the next Annual General Meeting, to be convened for 17 April 2024, and will expire after the Annual General Meeting of 2028. In 2025, the 8-year tenures of Jack de Kreij and Michael Rhodin will expire. The Supervisory Board therefore nominated Maaike as the sixth board member today, to succeed Jack de Kreij as Chair of the Audit Committee in 2025. The Supervisory Board intends to nominate a successor for Michael Rhodin at the AGM in 2025.

As of the day of her appointment, Maaike will become a member of the Audit Committee. Upon the adoption of the proposed nomination by the General Meeting, the Supervisory Board will consist of Derk Haank (Chairman), Jack de Kreij (Deputy Chairman), Michael Rhodin, Marili ‘t Hooft-Bolle, Gemma Postlethwaite, and Maaike Schipperheijn.

Maaike’s appointment aligns with the statutory regulations limiting the number of supervisory board positions held by members under Dutch law, as well as with the independence criteria outlined in the Dutch Corporate Governance Code and the Supervisory Board profile.
