Ajax have reached agreement with Henri van der Aat as interim managing director. He takes over from Maarten Fontein, with whom Ajax recently settled an exit arrangement.

Van der Aat (51) will start fulltime on 18 March 2008, for a period of at least six months. On behalf of Ajax he will focus on amongst others commercial matters, media, PR and communication.

Van der Aat spent the past months as interim director of the Rabobank cycle team. His duties as director of Holland's biggest sports marketing agency, Trefpunt Sports & Leisure Marketing, will be temporarily fullfilled by others.
