Dutch IR Awards 2015

Yesterday evening saw the eighth annual Dutch IR Awards 2015 take place in the capital, hosted by The Dutch Society for Investor Relations (NEVIR). For the first time, RD:IR was a proud sponsor for the evening and MD, Richard Davies and International Marketing Manager, Elleke Wiewel, were in attendance to watch the event unfold at the Amsterdam ArenA.

The awards were presented to Dutch companies and professionals that excel in maintaining their relationships with investors and analysts by means of good and clear disclosure, accessibility, knowledge and loyalty. Prizes were awarded for Best Company in the field of IR and Best IR Professional and winners were selected by an independent specialist jury.



Best Company

AEX listed (Large cap) – ASML

AMX listed (Mid cap) – Arcadis

AScX listed (Small cap) – Overig Grontmij


Best IR Professional

AEX – Martijn Schuttevaer, Boskalis 

AMX – Joost Slooten, Arcadis

NEVIR Winners

According to the jury “the winners stood out by matters such as continuity in IR policy, know-how of the IR professional and the quality of both the financial and non-financial reporting”.

This year an additional prize was awarded; for the first time, a so-called life-time achievement award was
presented. This prize was awarded to Huub van Rozendaal, CFO of Sligro, who in the Jury’s opinion, demonstrated to recognise the importance of investor relations and is continually appreciated by his stakeholders.


RD:IR would like to congratulate all the nominees and winners at the Dutch IR Awards 2015.
