Corné van Zeijl, on behalf of the jury: “Topics that Investor Relations professionals are focusing on are getting more diverse and dynamic. At the same time, companies use an increasingly broad mix of communication tools. For this twelfth edition of the Dutch IR Awards, we looked again at the level of disclosure, the accessibility, the visibility of management and the willingness of management to engage. In the end, a clear vision, transparent reporting, and a continuous dialogue were the decisive factors in selecting winners.”
The nominations were based on European research by WeConvene Extel and additional research conducted by CFF Communications among investors and financial analysts. After nomination, the winners were selected by an independent expert jury. This year’s jury consisted of: Corné van Zeijl (ACTIAM), Willem Burgers (Add Value Fund Management), Maarten Verbeek (the IDEA!), Michiel van Dijk (Kempen) and Jan-Jaap Bongers (Teslin). Last year’s winners were excluded from participation.
