Intertrust names new interim CFO as de Vries departs

Intertrust has appointed an Hans Turkesteen as its interim CFO, following the resignation of Maarten de Vries after less than a year in the role.

Turkesteen will take on the role immediately, and de Vries will remain in his position until 31 December 2017 to ensure a smooth handover, before joining Akzonobel as CFO.

Turkesteen will remain in the interim position until the end of 2018, subject to regulatory approval, while Intertrust commences the search for a new CEO. This follows the news that David de Buck, current CEO, will not be running for another four-year term.

A company spokesperson said the decision to make the position interim was made in order to give the incoming CEO the chance to hand pick his or her own team.

Turkesteen has over 25 years’ experience in the professional services industry, including as managing partner of the financial services division at Deloitte. He also served as CFO at Stork and later at Royal Imtech.

Buck said: “We welcome Hans Turkesteen as interim CFO and member of our executive committee. We are confident [his] broad background in professional services, deep financial expertise and extensive capital markets experience will benefit the further development of Intertrust.”

“We also thank Maarten de Vries for his valuable contribution during his short tenure with us and wish him well for his future.”

Turkesteen commented: “I am pleased to join Intertrust as their interim CFO. The company has a strong global market position and provides high-value, in-demand business services to a world-class client portfolio. I am looking forward to working with my new colleagues to further strengthen the company’s profile, reputation and performance.”
