NETHERLANDS - Bernard van de Ven has taken over from Pieter Kiveron as commercial director at Dutch pension servicing company MN Services.

“I have taken over the role of commercial director of MN Services from Pieter Kiveron,” he told IPE.

Insurance industry consultant Kiveron had been employed on a temporary basis by the Rijswijk-based firm, which is owned by the PMT pension fund.

Van de Ven joined MN in 2004 as a senior account manager for marketing from ABN Amro.

IPE reported yesterday that Blue Sky Group, the Dutch pension fund manager which runs the KLM pension fund, had appointed Francis van Bergenhenegouwen as head of commercial affairs.
