NETHERLANDS – The 6.4 billion-euro pension fund for the Dutch printing industry, Stichting Pensioenfonds voor de Grafische Bedrijfsfondsen, has named Paul van Leeuwen as its new general director.

Van Leeuwen, 52, joins from Erasmus Verzekeringen and takes up the post on January 1. He succeeds Jan Koning, who had been with the fund for 12 years.

“We have an experienced manager with Van Leeuwen,” said G. Pond, the president of the fund’s governing board.

The Amsterdam-based defined benefit scheme has more than 47,000 members, 28,000 pensioners and more than 200,000 deferred pensioners.
