The Supervisory Board very much regrets Marije is leaving the Board. We are extremely grateful for her contribution to the Supervisory Board and the value she added during the last three years. Her analytical skills, quick thinking, strategic insight, social skills and loyalty have helped Fastned enormously in its first years as a listed company.
