Jean-François van Boxmeer (pictured left), Chairman and CEO of Heineken, is to step down following his successful 15 year leadership of the company. He will be succeeded by Dolf van den Brink (pictured right), currently President Asia Pacific region and member of the Heineken executive team, on 1 June 2020.

Jean-François van Boxmeer joined Heineken as a management trainee in 1984. After a number of international management positions, he was appointed member of the executive board in 2001 and became Chairman and CEO in 2005.

Jean-Marc Huët, Chairman of Heineken, comments: “The Supervisory Board is grateful for the extraordinary contribution of Jean-François van Boxmeer in bringing Heineken to where it is today. Under his stewardship, the company more than doubled in size due to both strong organic growth and transformational deals that turned Heineken into the most global brewer, with iconic brands enjoyed by consumers on all continents. Not only did he deliver superior top-line growth and an excellent business performance, he also developed and nurtured a diverse and great talent pool across the world. He will leave behind a company excellently positioned to grow further. For all this, we owe Jean-François a heartfelt and huge thank you.”

Jean-François van Boxmeer comments: “It has been a great privilege and honour to lead Heineken and to work with so many great people from all over the world over the past three decades. I feel now is the right moment to hand over leadership to the next generation.”

Dolf van den Brink is a proven strong business leader. Throughout his 22 year career at Heineken he has successfully built high performing teams in both developed and developing markets. He is currently a highly valued member of the executive team and successfully leads the Asia Pacific region as President. His successor will be announced in due course.
