Marie-Christine Lombard, CEO of TNT Express, has sent in her resignation since she wanted to pursue an external career opportunity. This was announced by the supervisory board of TNT Express. She will leave the company by the end of September. Bernard Bot, the current CFO, has been appointed by the supervisory board to take over as interim CEO.
Antony Burgmans, chairman of the supervisory board, clarified that Marie-Christine Lombard’s resignation had no bearing on the intended merger with UPS, which TNT expected “to complete in early 2013”.
