Aegon’s CFO to retire next year, Darryl Button set to replace him

The chief financial officer of insurance group Aegon, Jan Nooitgedagt, is retiring next year, the company said on Tuesday.

Nootgedagt, 59, will stand down in line with Aegon’s ‘retirement arrangements for executive board members’, the company said in a statement.
The company will nominate Darryl Button, a 43-year-old Canadian national, as his successor at next year’s AGM. Button is currently executive vice president and head of Aegon’s corporate financial centre. He was CFO of Aegon Americas for eight years.
Aegon also announced its chief risk officer Tom Grondin, also 43 and Canadian, is to join the management board from next year.
The move ‘will further strengthen our disciplined approach to managing business risk in a manner that supports our long-term growth ambitions’, Aegon said in a statement.
