Jean-François Delepoulle, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Maxeda DIY Group:
“Maxeda DIY Group is a robust market leading DIY retailer with four strong customer focused formats (Praxis, Formido, Brico and Brico Plan-It). Over the last few years we have strengthened our financial position, improved the efficiencies in the organization and enhanced the synergies within the Benelux. I want to thank Roel Van Neerbos for his commitment and contribution to the company and our people.
Operating in a highly competitive retail market, we want to reinforce our leading position and further strengthen the Maxeda business. With the appointment of a CEO with the experience of Guy Colleau we are confident that we can achieve this.”
