Bernard Bot TNT Express

TNT Express chief financial officer Bernard Bot is to step down from his position this year.

Bot has been CFO at the express parcel carrier since 2011 and acted as interim CEO between September 2012 and June 2013, following the departure of former CEO Marie Christine Lombard.

Bot joined TNT Post in the Netherlands as group director for business control in 2005. He was then appointed acting CFO for TNT Post in 2010, prior to its de-merger from TNT Express.

Although the company has not yet set a date for his departure, TNT Express has begun its search for his successor.

Chairman of the supervisory board Antony Burgmans said: “Bot played an important role in the development of TNT Express. He built a strong global finance organisation and initiated the turnaround of the company through the Deliver! programme. For this, he deserves our gratitude and we wish Bernard all the best for the future.”
