Connect Group names Jeroen Tuik as its new Chief Executive Officer

Connect Group appoints Jeroen Tuik as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) as of 1 May 2016.  A 43 year old Dutchman, Jeroen Tuik has gathered a wealth of management experience in the electronics subcontracting world in the course of his career, inter alia in management positions at Benchmark and Pemstar, two companies operating in the same sector as Connect Group.

In April 2015, Flor Peersman, the company's Chief Operating Officer, was appointed CEO ad interim, a position he holds to this day. With the appointment of Jeroen Tuik as CEO, the management team is back to full strength, meaning that Flor Peersman can now fully focus on operations in his role as COO.

Flor Peersman: “I am very pleased that Jeroen has joined our management team. Exercising the dual role of CEO and COO was quite a burden. Though I enjoyed doing it, I'm also glad that I'll be able to start concentrating on my duties as COO again. Our markets and the challenges we face require the full attention of a full-time COO and a full-time CEO. With Jeroen on board, this will be the case.”

Jeroen Tuik: “I greatly look forward to joining the Connect Group management team. Though the company is still facing major challenges, I have great belief in its capabilities and wish to make my contribution to its success.”

Jeroen Tuik will be nominated for appointment as director at the 26 April 2016 Annual General Meeting.

The Board of Directors wishes Jeroen Tuik lots of success in his new position.
