AMSTERDAM (Sept. 1, 2017) — C.H. Robinson today announces the appointment of Lucas Faase as a member of its executive leadership team in the role of finance director, Europe. Faase replaces Wim Feys, who became finance director, Europe, in 2007. Feys will continue to play a key role on the European executive leadership team in a new opportunity as regional director, Iberia.

Faase brings 22 years of experience to his new role, with a background in highly competitive international markets in branded FMCG, business-to-business, foodservice, and supply chain industries. Faase joins C.H. Robinson from FrieslandCampina, where he held the position of global director corporate controlling. Over the years, he also held various financial leadership roles within FrieslandCampina and Sara Lee.

“The knowledge, expertise and experience that Lucas brings to C.H. Robinson further strengthens our executive team,” said Andrew Clarke, CFO, C.H. Robinson. “Both Lucas’ appointment, as well as Wim’s promotion, will continue to consolidate the leadership of our organisation and are evidence of the excessive career opportunities that employment with C.H. Robinson may offer.”

Under Feys’ financial leadership, C.H. Robinson grew its presence in Europe through aggressive organic growth, as well as acquisitions including Apreo Logistics in 2012.

“Wim is a well-respected leader across all divisions in Europe, and I’m delighted to keep him as part of our team within a new career challenge,” said Jeroen Eijsink, president, Europe, C.H. Robinson. “At the same time, I’m pleased to see Lucas join our team to help support our objectives. Lucas’ wealth of experience will be crucial as we continue to grow our business and execute our strategy.”

“I am very excited to lead the finance function in Europe at C.H. Robinson. I am privileged to step into a well-developed organisation, and am very supportive of its plans,” Faase said. “I am ready to bring the financial discipline and leadership necessary to deliver further growth.”
