Anne Wilschut (37) joins the BeFrank Management Team. Together with Jan Hein Rhebergen, he is responsible for managing the first Premium Pension Institution (PPI) in the Netherlands.
BeFrank announced previously that it would move forward this year with NN PPI as one company under the name BeFrank. This makes it the largest player in the PPI market. Within the new situation, Jan Hein Rhebergen will be responsible for Commercial Activities and Anne Wilschut will have overall responsibility.
Anne Wilschut: ‘I am proud to be part of this innovative team that broke open the pension market at the time. Both PPIs strengthen each other and I am convinced that together we have an even better starting position for optimally serving new and existing clients.’
Jan Hein Rhebergen: ‘With this appointment our Management Team is once again complete and we can move full force ahead. We have had a fantastic year in which we’ve both welcomed new clients and seen 99% of clients whose contract expired opt to stay with us. We are consequently looking to this year with a great deal of confidence. Our focus will continue to be on bringing pensions closer to people and to making employers’ lives easier.’
Anne Wilschut is succeeding Marianne de Boer, who left the company in January. Wilschut has served as the Director of NN PPI since 2016. Prior to that he held various positions within ING and NN Group from 2005. The legal merger of the PPIs will be finalised in the course of 2018.
BeFrank has been operating in the group pensions market since 2011 and is the Netherlands’ first Premium Pension Institution (PPI). BeFrank provides a transparent pension, clear communications, online services and low costs. It is part of the NN Group.
