Peter Blom will be leaving Triodos Bank over the next year. Blom announced this on Tuesday. He has been with the Dutch bank, which is also active in Belgium, since it was founded in 1980.
Aart de Geus, chairman of the supervisory board, calls Blom “a great banker”. “We respect his decision to step down next year.” According to the bank, there is enough time to find a successor. This process has now been started.
Blom started out as a volunteer at the bank and became one of Triodos’ first investment bankers in 1982. In 1989 he was appointed general manager and in 1997 promoted to chairman of the board. Blom received a Royal Award in the Netherlands in 2008 for his contribution to social banking and sustainability.
