Ahold Delhaize Announces Departure of Chief Human Resources Officer Abbe Luersman
ZAANDAM, THE NETHERLANDS - There comes a time when great leaders may leave, but their impact on a company will always remain. Ahold Delhaize announced that its Chief Human Resources Officer Abbe Luersman has decided to leave the company as of April 30, 2021.
After stepping down from her current role, Abbe Luersman will be returning to the United States after 13 years in Europe, according to a press release released by the company.
“On behalf of the entire organization, I would like to thank Abbe for her valuable contributions and wish her and her family all the very best in the future,” said CEO Frans Muller. “She has played a significant role in shaping our culture, leading our talent development and people strategies, and driving our pursuit for diversity, equity, and inclusion. We have experienced Abbe’s commitment to always do what’s right for our company, our associates, and the communities we serve. Her expertise and leadership served our company well during her tenure.”
While Ahold Delhaize did not announce who will be taking over as the new Chief Human Resources Officer, we can expect to hear soon as the company begins its search for a new leader to fill these big shoes.
“We have already begun the search for Abbe’s replacement,” stated Muller. “As we do, cultivating best talent will continue to be an integral part of the Ahold Delhaize Leading Together Strategy as one of its four key growth drivers.”
