Last night, Thursday 10 January, the branch association for Investor Relations NEVIR presented the annual Dutch IR Award to Dutch listed organisations and professionals who excel in Investor Relations. This time, ForFarmers’ Director of IR & Corporate Communications - Caroline Vogelzang - won the award in the AScX/Others category in the group of professionals. We congratulate her on this achievement!
Corné van Zeijl, on behalf of the jury: “The subjects that Investor Relations professionals should focus on are becoming ever more diverse and dynamic. At the same time, companies are using an increasingly broad mix of communication tools. For this, the 12th edition of the Dutch IR Awards we have re-examined, among other things, the level of publications, accessibility and visibility of management. A clear vision, transparent reporting and a continuous dialogue were the decisive factors in selecting the winners.”
The Dutch IR Award is not only about the hard figures of an organisation, but also about the story behind the figures. The nominations are made on the basis of inquiries conducted by a research company in combination with additional investigations among investors and financial analysts. An independent expert jury chose the recipient of the Award.
The winners, f.l.t.r. Bert-Jaap Dijkstra (SBM Offshore), Richard Piekaar (Basic-Fit), Frank Jansen (Be Semiconductor Industries), Dies Donker (ABN AMRO), Caroline Vogelzang (ForFarmers).
