Just Eat Takeaway.com N.V. (LSE: JET, AMS: TKWY), hereinafter the “Company”, hereby announces that Mr. Brent Wissink will be stepping down as Chief Financial Officer and member of the Management Board.
Brent Wissink informed the Company that he wishes to pursue other opportunities and will be stepping down as Chief Financial Officer and resign from the Management Board of the Company as per the Company’s annual general meeting in May 2024. The Supervisory Board will initiate the process of finding a successor for Mr. Brent Wissink.
Brent Wissink, Chief Financial Officer of Just Eat Takeaway.com: "It has been an honour to have been part of the Just Eat Takeaway.com journey over the past years. Since 2011, when I joined the Company, the Company transformed from a local Dutch player into one of the world’s leading global online food delivery marketplaces. I am proud to have had the opportunity to contribute to the success of Just Eat Takeaway.com. I would like to thank my fellow Management Board members, the Supervisory Board and all employees of Just Eat Takeaway.com for their hard work and commitment to Just Eat Takeaway.com. I look forward to continuing working with the team to ensure a smooth transition and to help identify my successor."
Dick Boer, Chair of the Supervisory Board of Just Eat Takeaway.com: "The Supervisory Board respects the rationale of Brent Wissink’s decision and regretfully accepted his resignation. Brent can be proud of what has been achieved since he joined the Company, from the first-ever investor round in 2011, the initial public offering in 2016 to multiple mergers and acquisitions. His efforts for the Company as Chief Financial Officer and as member of the Management Board are tremendously appreciated."
Jitse Groen, CEO of Just Eat Takeaway.com: "There are always many fathers of success in stories such as ours, but there are only few that actually deserve that title. Brent is a clear father of the success of JET, and I am confident that we would have not made it this far without him. I regret to lose him, but of course understand that it is time for Brent to pursue new challenges.
Brent is not only an outstanding CFO, but he has also always been a driving force of the business, and perhaps even more important, a JET culture carrier. I speak on behalf of our entire company as well as Joerg and Andrew when I say that we will be eternally grateful for his contribution."
