CFO change at FrieslandCampina

FrieslandCampina has appointed Hans Janssen as Chief Financial Officer as of 1 May 2021 taking over the position from Jaska de Bakker, who has decided to leave the company in the summer of 2021 to pursue a portfolio of non-executive directorships.


Hans Janssen joins FrieslandCampina from building & infrastructure company Heijmans where he has been CFO since 2017. Prior to that Janssen was CFO at medical care company Mediq for nine years. Janssen started his career at Unilever, where he worked for 17 years in financial and operational roles with increasing responsibility in the Netherlands, the U.K., Singapore and Malaysia.

Jaska de Bakker joined FrieslandCampina in January 2017 in Singapore as finance director for the Business Group Consumer Products Asia. In January 2018, De Bakker moved to the company’s head office in Amersfoort (The Netherlands) to become Group CFO and member of the Executive Board. De Bakker has decided to leave FrieslandCampina to pursue a portfolio of non-executive directorships as a next step in her successful career. To secure a seamless hand-over to her successor there will be a transition period from May 1st until the summer during which De Bakker will be available to support Janssen.

Frans Keurentjes, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Royal FrieslandCampina: “We are very grateful for Jaska’s commitment and impact on the company over the past four years. Jaska has been instrumental in defining our strategy and transforming FrieslandCampina into a more resilient company. She has also built strong finance and IT functions, has driven digital transformation and data analytics and with that has fostered a culture of transparency and fact-based decision making. On behalf of the Supervisory Board and the member farmers, I want to thank Jaska for her dedication and many contributions to the company. We wish her every success in the future.

Please join me in welcoming Hans Janssen to FrieslandCampina. We look forward to working with him in the next stage of the company’s transformation. Hans has successfully worked in complex and challenging environments and brings extensive international experience to FrieslandCampina.”
