I am proud we found a strong successor for Stan within our senior management team.

I would like to thank Stan, who as a member of our Management Board was part of NN Group’s IPO in 2014 – an important milestone in the history of our company. We appreciate his dedicated service to NN and its customers. During his tenure, Stan successfully positioned NN Investment Partners as a strong member of NN Group, with a distinct business proposition for our institutional and retail clients. We wish him all the best for the years to come.’
