Following the closing of Series B the composition of Nutrileads’ Supervisory Board has been changed. After nearly 5 years, Rudy Mareel stepped down as Chairman of the Board and Sanne Melles was selected as new Chairman. Nityen Lal joined the existing Board members, Florentine Fockema Andreae, Michel Briejer and Rob Beudeker who all remain in function.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Rudy Mareel for his years of commitment to NutriLeads. He became chairman during the Seed Round and helped Nutrileads through an important phase of its existence including the closing of the Series A and B funding rounds. Thanks to his experience as seasoned executive in the food and healthcare industry with extensive strategic, operational and change management experience in senior leadership roles, he proved to be a strong and dedicated support to the NutriLeads management team.
A special welcome to Sanne Melles, the new Chairman of the Board. Sanne developed his interest and expertise in the food ingredients and biotech industry through multiple executive and non-executive board positions in biotech and food ingredient companies. In addition, he advises various start-ups developing next generation food ingredients. Most recently, Sanne as CEO was responsible for the successful exit of CSK food enrichment to DSM. Sanne’s experience and network will be a great asset to Nutrileads in the next phase of the company and we look forward to working with him.
