He will be succeeding the current CFO, Mr Gerard Ezendam (1952), who will be stepping down from the board by mutual consent. Mr Ezendam will continue to work at Nedap and will concentrate on taxation and staff related affairs. In order to guarantee the proper handover of tasks and responsibilities, Mr Urff will become the Financial Director of Nedap as of 1 September 2014.
Mr Urff gained his degree in Technical Business Administration at the University of Twente before following a postgraduate programme as Controller. He subsequently gained broad financial and management experience in a variety of sectors. For the past two years, Mr Urff has been a partner at BoerCroon, and before that he was the Managing Director at NIBC.
This planned appointment is commensurate with the drive towards the further professionalisation and the improvement of the scalability of the Nedap organisation. The Works Council will be consulted for its advice.
