Atze Bosma has been appointed as CEO of MPS to achieve the company’s new shareholders’ ambitions of becoming a top-three player in the market.

Mr Bosma was introduced to MPS by new shareholders, ABN AMRO Participaties (AAP), which became a shareholder in MPS, together with management, in May 2018. He succeeds Wim van den Bosch, who decided to continue his career outside of MPS as of 1 January 2019.

Friso Janmaat, managing director of AAP, commented, ‘Wim van den Bosch did an excellent job at MPS ensuring the organisation was well-positioned for further global growth. We are thankful for his efforts over the past five years, and we trust Atze Bosma to be the right person to lead MPS towards an even stronger position in the printing industry.’

Mr Bosma brings 30 years of management experience in the packaging, logistics and food industries, having previously worked for various (international) companies including Heineken, Florimex International and the Dutch Railways. He also has broad experience in leading transitioning companies, mostly in the role of CEO. 

‘As I was looking for a new challenge in my career, when AAP approached me for this role at MPS, it was the right step for me to take,’ commented Mr Bosma. ‘MPS is a company with a great deal of potential, and I look forward to further unleashing its true value.’
