John Hak resigns as chairman of Kempen & Co board
Dutch investment bank Kempen & Co, a subsidiary of Van Lanschoot, has confirmed the resignation of John Hak (pictured) from his position as chairman of the management board.
The reason for his resignation is a difference of opinion about the new corporate government model of the group. Hak will leave the firm officialy as of 1 March.
His resignation comes one month after the departure of Kempen & Co CFO Michel van de Coevering. According to Van Lanschoot, the two departures are unrelated.
Kempen & Co has become a subsidiary of Van Lanschoot in 2007 but continues to have an independent management board.
