Krijn Rietveld deceased
29 January 2018 - Today, we received the sad news of the sudden and unexpected death of Krijn Rietveld. We express our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
As from mid-2016, Krijn was a board member of our TiFN foundation and since last December he was chairman of our board. He was eager to fulfill this role to the best of abilities. Together we were full of plans to shape the future of the Institute. Krijn was inspiring to us all and stimulated the values TiFN represents with much enthusiasm. He considered this role as a new challenge in his very rich career. Krijn’s cooperative yet decisive personality made him an outstanding chairman. He had a keen eye for complex situations and managed to find the right solutions quickly. We also experienced Krijn as a warm personality who was open to everybody. We are deeply saddened that we can no longer experience his cordial support, and that we have to miss him as a dear colleague and friend. We sympathize with the grief of and express our empathy to his Krijn’s family and friends who will miss his wonderful and special personality.
On behalf of the other current and former board members and the staff of TiFN
Ronald Visschers Managing Director
