Changes in AkzoNobel's Supervisory Board

The Supervisory Board of Akzo Nobel N.V. today announced changes to its membership that will be proposed for adoption by the company's Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on April 29th, 2014.

Current Chairman Karel Vuursteen will retire from the Supervisory Board having completed 3 terms of office since joining the Board in 2002. He became Chairman in 2009. Antony Burgmans will be put forward for re-appointment after reaching the end of his second term at this year's AGM. Following such re-appointment the Supervisory Board intends to elect Burgmans as Chairman to succeed Vuursteen.

Louis Hughes will also reach the end of his second term this year and will be nominated for re-appointment.

Sir Peter Ellwood will step down at the AGM after six years on the Board. In his place the Supervisory Board is putting forward Byron Grote for appointment. Grote brings with him extensive experience of complex multinational environments as well as deep financial expertise, having been a member of the Board of BP plc from 2000 to 2013, during which time he headed the petrochemicals business before becoming CFO. Grote currently holds the role of non-executive director at Unilever, chairing the Audit Committee, and is also a non-executive director at Anglo-American plc.

Following the proposed changes, the Supervisory Board will have eight members instead of the current nine.
