Vlerick pays respects to board member Bert Heemskerk

With sadness we received the message that Bert Heemskerk, who was a member of the Board of Directors of Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School since 2009, passed away after a short illness. Bert Heemskerk had an impressive career in banking at respectively Amro and Van Lanschot. In 1992 he became Chairman of the Management Board of Rabobank and succeeded in developing this outstanding triple-A organisation and steering it successfully through the banking crisis. He accepted generously to represent the Dutch business world in our Board, and accompanied our first steps in what is to become our second home market.

We offer our sincere condolences to his family and the employees of Rabobank.

For the Board and employees of Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School.

Louis-H. Verbeke
Chairman

Philippe Haspeslagh
Dean
