AFC Ajax’s Supervisory Board has nominated Danny Blind as a Board member. A decision will be made about this nomination during the upcoming Special General Shareholders’ Meeting on Monday, April 23, at 13:00 at the Toekomst sports park.
The Meeting’s agenda and the clarification, as well as Danny Blind’s personal information, are available on this website.
Danny Blind’s upcoming appointment would fill the void left after Theo van Duivenbode’s departure. Blind’s nomination has the support of the majority shareholder (the Ajax association) and AFC Ajax NV’s Works Council.
President commissioner Leo van Wijk: “After Theo van Duivenbode’s departure, we searched for a suitable successor. This would be a fellow commissioner who could focus on the football portfolio; somebody who would bring the necessary experience, and, preferably, an Ajacied who knows the club very well. We were very excited when Danny Blind was interested when we approached him about the position. Danny more than meets our criteria, and I’m very happy to be able to nominate him as a candidate.”
