The board is very pleased with this reappointment and the pleasant and constructive collaboration in recent years. With this nomination for a third term, the board expresses its confidence in Jochem. His continuation in office ensures continuity, which will certainly be a gain for participants, employers and other stakeholders of Pensioenfonds PGB with a view to the transition to the new pension.
Great commitment to Pensioenfonds PGB
By opting for a third term, Jochem underlines his commitment to Pensioenfonds PGB: “In recent years, as a board member and later as chairman of the board, I have enjoyed contributing to a good pension for all our participants in so many different ways. As a board, we’re always negotiating solid long-term agreements with social partners and employers. With the arrival of the new pension, there’s still a lot of work to be done. Pensioenfonds PGB expects to make the transition to the new pension on 1 January 2027. Until then, but also afterwards, we still have a lot to do. For a multi-sector fund like ours, this certainly brings opportunities and challenges. I’m pleased I can commit to this again as chairman of the board in the coming board period.”
