Vacancy: New Chairperson for the FNL

There is a time to come and a time to go.

Recently, we had a meeting of the board with the Supervisory Board of the FNL. Among other things, we discussed how we can bring fresh perspectives to the FNL.

That conversation planted a seed in me. Not long after, I realized that in terms of bringing fresh perspectives, I should start with myself and make room for a new chairperson. Moreover, this is an opportune moment for new leadership in terms of the development of the FNL.

With new energy, the FNL can continue to grow organically from a solid foundation. It’s a fantastic challenge!

You’re not rid of me yet… I will, of course, only step down once the new chairperson is appointed.

I look forward to seeing you at the Circle Gathering June 22, where I can tell you more about the chairmanship.

With natural regards,


On behalf of the Supervisory Board of the FNL, we would first like to thank Wiet for his excellent role as chairperson of the FNL over the past years, during which he has introduced some important changes and new ideas and further professionalized the FNL.

We have agreed with Wiet and the board that we will look for a new chairperson with the same passion for the FNL that all our previous chairpersons have shown. We also find it important to find someone who still has an active daily job in the corporate or financial world or in the service sector, but preferably not someone who works as a coach, to avoid potential conflicts of interest with the activities of the FNL.

We look forward to welcoming this new chairperson soon and thank Wiet once again for his passionate and valuable contribution to the FNL.

Kind regards,
