Dick Sluimers has been appointed as a trustee of the IFRS Foundation, the oversight body of the International Accounting Standards Board.
Sluimers is chief executive of APG Group, a Dutch-based provider of asset management, administration and communication services for pension funds.
He was previously chairman and chief executive of the pension fund ABP, and a former director general of the national budget within the Dutch Finance Ministry.
“The trustees are committed to providing a diversity of perspectives across the organisation and in recent years we have focussed on enhancing participation from the investor community. Sluimers is a highly respected leader of a large European pension provider. His appointment further strengthens the already impressive investor representation on the trustees,” trustees’ nominating committee chair Bryan Nicholson said.
