VanRiet Material Handling Systems, a leading global provider of integration systems, equipment, and after-market services solutions, today announced that Rik van den Boog has stepped down from his role as CEO of the Company following a successful seven-year leadership tenure.

The Company has initiated a formal search process for an experienced, permanent Managing Director. In the interim, the responsibilities of the CEO will be handled by a strong leadership committee comprised of CFO Johan Verhoeff, Kai Ramadhin, Director of Sales & Marketing, and Thomas van Workum, Director of Lifecycle Performance Services.

“Under Rik’s leadership, VanRiet has grown into a leading international system integrator and a world-class sorting and transport solutions provider with strong footholds throughout Europe, the US and China” said Mr. Ramadhin. “We are very grateful for Rik’s commitment and leadership as CEO.”

“It has been an honour and a privilege to work alongside our talented employees and for our valued customers over the last seven years,” said Mr. van den Boog. “I have no further ambition to run a business operationally anymore. However, it was a great experience to work in a sector that I did not know before.”
