Dirk Jan van den Berg, Chairman of the Supervisory Board at FMO: “Needless to say we regret to see Thessa leave as a valued member of the Supervisory Board. We have highly valued Thessa’s knowledge and experience and her critical mind in the Audit & Risk Committee. We are thankful that Thessa laid the groundwork for the Impact Committee and has chaired this committee with enthusiasm during the past few years. We started a search for a new member and hope to find a suitable candidate in due time and wish Thessa the best in current and future endeavours.”
