To achieve further global growth of the company, MPS, a Netherlands-based manufacturer of flexo, offset, and hybrid printing presses, appointed Atze Bosma as its new CEO.
Bosma was introduced to MPS by its new shareholders, ABN AMRO Participaties, who became a shareholder in MPS together with management in May 2018. With the acquisition by ABN AMRO Participaties (AAP), MPS entered a new growth phase to become a top-three player in the market.
Bosma succeeds Wim van den Bosch, who decided to continue his career outside of MPS as of January 1, 2019.
Friso Janmaat, Managing Director of AAP comments: “Wim van den Bosch did an excellent job at MPS ensuring the organization was well-positioned for further global growth. We are thankful for his efforts over the past five years, and we trust Atze Bosma to be the right person to lead MPS towards an even stronger position in the printing industry.”
Bosma brings 30 years of management experience in the packaging, logistics and food industries, having previously worked for various (international) companies including Heineken, Florimex International and the Dutch Railways. Bosma has broad experience in leading transitioning companies, mostly in the role of CEO.
“As I was looking for a new challenge in my career, when AAP approached me for this role at MPS, it was the right step for me to take,” comments Bosma. “MPS is a company with a great deal of potential, and I look forward to further unleashing its true value.”
Bosma will lead MPS alongside Willem Huijink, CFO, effective December 1, 2018.
In the upcoming months, Bosma will travel the world to meet MPS's international team and agents, customers and key industry leaders.
