Following the board meeting which took place on Monday, February 7, and a constructive discussion the following day between general manager Rik van den Boog, Ajax’s Board of Directors, and Johan Cruijff, three sounding board groups have been assigned to give advice to Ajax’s club leadership.
The existing financial commission from the Board will become the sounding board for financial issues. The group now consists of Hein Blocks, Roger van Boxtel, Kees Timmerman and Leo van Wijk. Jeroen Slop and Joop Krant will chair this board on behalf of Ajax’s management and Board of Directors.
The two new advice bodies will focus on association issues and the technical area. The sounding board for association issues will consist of Mark Geestman, Ruud Haarms, Hennie Henrichs, Keje Molenaar and Cees van Oevelen. On behalf of the Board of Directors, Uri Coronel and Cor van Eijden are represented in this platform. The sounding board for technical issues will consist of Peter Boeve, Johan Cruijff, Piet Keizer and Dick Schoenaker. On behalf of Ajax’s management, Rik van den Boog will chair this group.
Discussions will take place in the next few weeks to determine how involved Johan Cruijff will be in terms of any future role with Ajax.
