Departure of Hans Hoekman, former chairman of the Supervisory Board

17 Dec 2018
On 13 December we celebrated Hans Hoekman’s contribution to Avebe in our Innovation Centre in Groningen and look back at more than 25 years as member of the Supervisory Board.

Various speakers, including Kees Bakker (Members’ Council), Henk van Kalsbeek (Works Council) and Bert Jansen (CEO) had beautiful, kind and moving words to say about the role Hoekman played in the Avebe of today. Professional, open, being able to get at the crux and connecting parties were recurring themes in every speech.

A visit from Jan Seton, the Mayor of the Council Borger-Odoorn, demonstrated that Hoekman’s performance outside Avebe struck a note too. Hans Hoekman was appointed Knight in the Order of Orange-Nassau.

Over the past year, Hoekman has inducted his successor Marijke Folkers-in ’t Hout into her role as Chairperson of the Supervisory Board.

Innovation by nature
Avebe is developing

And has been for almost 100 years.
Not always to become more or bigger,
but always to be better.

This ambition deserves a new visual identity.
