Chief Executive Officer Raymond Noordermeer will be leaving dairy company De Graafstroom/DeltaMilk in Bleskensgraaf as of July 1, 2024. He will be succeeded by current Chief Financial Officer Remi Knulst. Knulst will assume the role of CEO from Noordermeer starting May 1, 2024.

Raymond Noordermeer

Noordermeer has been at the helm of De Graafstroom for almost eight years. "Eight successful years," reports the DeltaMilk/De Graafstroom combination. Noordermeer has indicated that it is now time for a new phase. With Noordermeer's arrival in 2016, significant strides were made, according to the cooperative. This includes optimizing business processes, tapping into new markets, and expanding partnerships. "Under his leadership, De Graafstroom/DeltaMilk has grown into an attractive and stable cheese producer for farmers and employees."

As of May 1, Remi Knulst will assume the role of CEO. Knulst has been associated with De Graafstroom/DeltaMilk for over seven years as Chief Financial Officer. His expertise and commitment make him, according to the cooperative, the right person for the CEO position. Henk van der Wind, Chairman of DeltaMilk, said, "We are extremely grateful to Raymond for the way he has dedicated himself to our cooperative and cheese production in recent years. At the same time, we are confident that with Remi as the new CEO, we can continue to build a solid future for De Graafstroom."
