Ahold Delhaize leader announces resignation

Ahold Delhaize's Jack Stahl has decided to step down from the company’s supervisory board due to other business-related commitments in the United States.

Stahl, who has served on the supervisory board since July 24, 2016, was chairman of the audit, finance and risk committee and a member of the governance and nomination committee. Prior to the merger of Ahold and Delhaize, he was a member of Delhaize Group’s supervisory board since 2008.

“Jack has been a committed and valued supervisory board member," Mats Jansson, chairman of Ahold Delhaize’s supervisory board, said in a press release. "First at Delhaize Group and, after the merger, at Ahold Delhaize. A veteran of the consumer-goods industry, Jack played a key role throughout the merger process and in shaping Ahold Delhaize. I would like to thank him for his continued support and efforts. The supervisory board will miss his professionalism, dedication, insight and sense of humor.”

Supervisory board member René Hooft Graafland has agreed to take over Stahl’s duties as chairman of the audit, finance and risk committee.
