Ebusco announced that shareholders approved the appointment of Jurjen Jongma as a member of the Management Board during today’s Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders (EGM) in Deurne.

Jurjen Jongma succeeds Björn Krook, who temporarily fulfilled the position of CFO over the past months. Krook will move back into his role as Investor Relations Manager.

Ebusco has communicated in late July that supply chain issues and labour shortages are still affecting the group’s business. The intention to move towards a production model that involves assembly partners was already announced in March 2023.

Ebusco appoints Jurjen Jongma as CFO

After today’s meeting, Jurjen Jongma (1971) assumed the role of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) with immediate effect, Ebusco says. Before joining Ebusco, Jongma (1971) was CFO at Versuni, formerly known as Philips Domestic Appliances. Prior to that, he held financial positions within Royal Philips for over 25 years, including in the role of CFO for various Philips business units, as well as Head of Internal Audit for Royal Philips.

Jurjen Jongma explains: “I’ve got to know Ebusco as a dynamic company that’s proactively and effectively driving the positive changes needed for our society’s battle against climate change. While I acknowledge the challenges we face as a company, I hold a strong belief in our product and am absolutely certain that Ebusco has a bright path ahead. Being part of that is something I am positively looking forward to!”

Peter Bijvelds, CEO of Ebusco, says: “Over the past weeks, we’ve witnessed the immense financial, operational and strategic expertise that Jurjen brings to the team. Having him join us as our new CFO is something we’re very much looking forward to. I’m confident his experience will be indispensable during Ebusco’s next growth phase, in which we are firmly committed to scaling our production capacity internationally.”
