Head of sales in Netherlands for Franklin Templeton put on leave
Franklin Templeton Investments has confirmed that Dirk de Vlaam, its head of sales and marketing in the Netherlands, is to leave the company to pursue “other opportunities”.
A spokeswoman told IPE the asset manager had put De Vlaam on gardening leave with immediate effect, and that his official employment would terminate on 1 December.
She added that De Vlaam – who could not be contacted by IPE independently – did not want to comment.
De Vlaam has served as head of Franklin Templeton’s four-strong sales team in the Netherlands since 2005.
Previously, he worked at ABN AMRO Private Banking as a product manager for investments, and as an adviser for institutional investors.
Franklin Templeton said it planned to hire another senior member for the team in the near future.
