The Board of Directors, with two members, determines Unica’s policy. The Supervisory Board, with three members, supervises the Board of Directors. The organisation is also coordinated by the Executive Committee, which includes representatives of all business clusters and shared services in addition to the Board of Directors. There is also regular constructive consultation with the Works Council, in which employee participation is regulated.
Board of Directors and Supervisory Board
The Board of Directors remained unchanged in 2020 and consisted of John Quist (CEO) and Bert Moser (CFO) for the entire financial year. There were no changes in the Supervisory Board in 2020 either. Michiel Jaski is Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Luc Hendriks and Henk ten Hove complete the Supervisory Board as Supervisory Board members. A report from the board on 2020 can be found here.
The Board of Directors and the Supervisory Board consist entirely of men. The Board of Directors has been unchanged since 2014, when John Quist took office as CEO. The Supervisory Board was installed in its current form in 2017. When the Supervisory Board was formed, an attempt was made include at least one woman, but unfortunately this was unsuccessful. If the composition of the boards changes, Unica will strive for more proportional representation of men and women on the Board of Directors and Supervisory Board.
The Works Council, which had 15 seats last year, received various requests for advice and approval in 2020. Thanks to regular and constructive consultation with, among others, the Board of Directors, the Works Council was able to approve and provide well-informed advice on policy developments within Unica. The 2020 Works Council report can be found here.
Unica ICT Solutions BV and Van Kempen Koudetechniek BV have their own Works Council. Regel Partners BV has its own employee representation.
During the period covered by the report, there were no significant changes in the share structure, except for the acquisitions of Numan & Kant BV (75%), PCT International BV (100%), Van Kempen Koudetechniek BV (100%) and Van Kempen Service BV (100%).
On 2 November 2018, a declaration was made to the Commercial Register about the two-tier board structure in place at Unica.
