Two DSB supervisory board members quit

Two of the four supervisory board members at DSB bank have resigned, the NRC reported on Tuesday evening.

René Neelissen is leaving because of a ‘conflict of interest’, the paper says. He is also a member of the board at DSB’s holding compay DSB Beheer and at football club AZ, which is owned by DSB Beheer. DSB Beheer owes the bank €75m.
Neelissen has been involved with DSB since 1980 when he did work experience at the bank as an economics student, the paper says.
Fon Koemans, who joined the board in January, has left because ‘he can no longer make a contribution’.
DSB has been under court protection since Monday after complaints about mortgage overselling and unnecessary insurance policies led to a run on the bank. The central bank then stepped in and asked the courts to take over.
