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.
