NETHERLANDS - Olaf Sleijpen, director of institutional clients at APG is leaving to start a new role at De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) at the start of 2011.
Sleijpen is also a member of the Executive Board of Cordares - a subsidiary of APG Group. He joined APG in March 2008 and became the director of corporate strategy and policy. Before this, he was employed by pension fund ABP in February 2004, and was appointed deputy head of allocation, director of the financial policy and risk department, and director of corporate strategy and policy.
Prior to APG, Sleijpen was advisor to the president of the European Central Bank, Wim Duise, from 2001 to 2004 and worked for at De Nederlandsche Bank from 1993 to 2001.
Sleijpen said: "I've played a key role in the integration of APG and Cordares. Moreover, I have been strongly involved in the pension administration mandate that the pension fund of medical specialists (Stichting Pensioenfonds Medisch Specialisten; SPMS) granted to APG earlier this year.
"DNB has offered me the new position very recently. I regard it as a big challenge and opportunity to contribute to both the Dutch pension sector and the role of the Dutch central bank, as a key institution in the Dutch and international financial landscape."
Sleijpen will be temporarily replaced by his current deputy Alwin Oerlemans until a permanent replacement is found.
