David Cole, chair of the NN Group Supervisory Board: ‘We are pleased to have found a strong successor for Delfin Rueda. Annemiek van Melick joins NN Group with extensive executive experience in the financial industry, and is well-placed to help drive our strategy in the years to come. At the same time, we are extremely grateful for Delfin’s commitment to NN Group over many years. During his ten years at NN Group and its predecessor ING Insurance Eurasia, Delfin has played an instrumental role in shaping NN Group’s strategy and in transforming the company into the strong international player that it is today. With his focus on NN Group’s robust financial and risk profile, Delfin played a key role in the IPO of the company in 2014, the implementation of Solvency II, and several acquisitions and divestments which further strengthened the company’s footprint. On behalf of the Supervisory Board, the Management Board and all NN Group employees, I want to thank Delfin for his valuable contribution and continuous dedication to the company.’

Delfin Rueda: ‘It has been an honour and pleasure to be the CFO of NN Group during a period of transition and growth. I very much enjoyed working with many inspirational teams and being part of our company’s journey. I would like to thank my many colleagues, both in the Management Board and throughout our organisation in all our different markets, for the great cooperation over the years.’

The Central Works Council of NN Group has been asked for advice on the intended appointment.
