Michiel Buitelaar, Chief Digital Officer of Sanoma’s Dutch media assets, will leave the company in August.He explains that he has experienced various life stages of the digital parts of the company – from a separate entity to a fully integrated company at one location with far-reaching co-operation between the various media types (print, online, TV), both nationally as well as internationally. Buitelaar: “I see that Sanoma is now entering a new phase, I think this is a necessary step. It also marks a good point in time, for me as well as for the company, to make room for someone else."Dick Molman, CEO of Sanoma Media Netherlands, comments: "Through his authentic and fresh way of thinking Michiel has made a big and valuable contribution to the growth and incorporation of our digital business and the transformation of our company, in the Netherlands and abroad. It is sad that he is leaving, but it is a change that fits him. We wish him great success."
