Ruud Sondag will be Royal Schiphol Group’s new CEO from 1 November 2022. The Supervisory Board appointed him ad interim until 31 August 2023. He forms Schiphol Group’s management team together with Robert Carsouw (Chief Financial Officer, CFO) and Hanne Buis (Chief Operating Officer, COO).

The procedure to find a definitive successor was started by the supervisory board immediately after Dick Benschop announced his resignation. This process obviously takes some time and will naturally continue. In order not to lose any headway in these challenging times for Schiphol, the supervisory board considers it desirable to quickly appoint an interim CEO who will take on the day-to-day management of Schiphol, and whose priority is to swiftly bring the operational processes at Schiphol up to the level that passengers and airlines are entitled to expect. He will therefore remain until the end of the Summer period 2023.
