Stepan Breedveld (43) to join Management Board of Ordina N.V.

Ordina appoints new member to Management Board

The Supervisory Board of Ordina N.V. has appointed Stepan Breedveld (43) to the Management Board. He will be responsible for Ordina’s activities in the Netherlands. Mr Breedveld will join Ordina on 15 November 2010. The appointment of Mr Breedveld as a statutory director will be put on the agenda of the upcoming Annual General Meeting of Shareholders.
Stepan Breedveld worked at The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) for more than 15 years. He successfully helped to develop strategies and bring about performance improvements for leading telecoms, IT and technology companies in the Netherlands and abroad, and has recently been involved with Ordina in that capacity. He also gained extensive experience in managing professional services organisations. In his role as a Senior Partner and Managing Director, he was in charge of the day-to-day management of the telecoms, media and technology practice (TMT) of BCG’s Amsterdam office and of the world-wide telecoms activities.
Mr Breedveld’s appointment to Ordina’s Management Board is a logical result of the company’s strategic course. At Ordina Netherlands, Mr Breedveld will focus on delivering performance improvements across the board.

Mr Breedveld’s appointment to Ordina’s Management Board will also allow Ronald Kasteel, CEO, and Bart de Jong, CFO, to focus fullly on their core duties. This will create a more formidable Management Board that will lay the foundation for service improvements, growth and a robust operating profit for Ordina.
