Jaap Winter joins the Supervisory Board of Royal Schiphol Group. Schiphol Group's shareholders have agreed to this. Winter is appointed for a period of four years. 

Winter is partner at Partner Phyleon leadership & governance. He advises boards and non-executive and executive directors on board leadership, board dynamics and governance. Before that, he was chairman of the Executive Board of the VU University in Amsterdam. Winter has a great deal of legal experience, with governance as a specialism.

He is also Chairman of the Board of Stichting ADORE, that is committed to funding building and research facilities for oncological and neurological research at the Amsterdam Universities Medical Centre. 

Schiphol faces important challenges, including the need for a sustainable transformation of aviation. I look forward to contributing in this role.
