There are currently no women on the Statutory Management Board of the company nor on its Supervisory Board. Beter Bed Holding N.V. consequently does not officially fulfil the requirement for a balanced distribution of seats (30% male/female).
Diversity on the basis of gender was emphatically taken into account in the search for new members of the Management Board and the Supervisory Board. In addition, the selection was made on the basis of broad experience, background, skills, knowledge and insights, with careful consideration of a balanced composition with regard to all these criteria. With the proposed appointment of a financial expert the Supervisory Board expects to move towards a legally required percentage. The goal to increase diversity in the top management remains.
