Marketing manager Michel Schaeffer has decided to leave Dutch online retailer Bol.com on 1 August 2015. Margaret Versteden will succeed Schaeffer, who has worked for the company for 14 years.
Replacement with experience
"For the past 14 years at bol.com, I have been in a real book for boys with every chapter full of excitement and fun. It was a real thrilling period and I am grateful and proud that I, alongside a fantastic team of colleagues, have managed to realize the ambition to make bol.com a huge and resounding success in Belgium and the Netherlands. 2014 was bol.com's most successful year to date", Schaeffer said.
Margaret Versteden will replace him and she will join the board on 1 June 2015 already. She has previous working experience at companies like BCG, Bain & Company and Nike, where she ran the eCommerce and online customization business unit. "I love the fact that I will soon join the team at bol.com. It is very inspirational to see the ambition, drive and positive energy in bol.com's ranks", Versteden said.
