Hansen resigns from Delhaize board
Brussels, Belgium -- Jean-Pierre Hansen is resigning from the board of directors of The Delhaize Group effective June 30. Hansen, who initially joined in 2011, said the position required more time than he anticipated and he needed to attend to commitments in the energy sector and other unspecified duties.
“I have very much enjoyed working with great colleagues on the Board and wish the company well in its future growth," said Hansen.
"A prominent figure in the European business world with impressive experience gained outside of our sector, Jean-Pierre Hansen brought a very thoughtful and highly valued contribution to the board and he will be greatly missed" said Mats Jansson, chairman of the board.
