Wereldhave optimizes the organizational structure in order to more effectively achieve the objectives of the LifeCentral strategy, while delivering on cost cutting commitments.
“In the new organizational structure, effective from 1 April 2023, we are integrating the management for Wereldhave Holding and Wereldhave Netherlands, creating a new Executive Team and Management Team. As a result, the separate Management Team for the Dutch market will be dissolved and related costs will be aligned with the size of our portfolio. Despite the high inflationary environment, Wereldhave targets a 5-10% reduction of general expenses in 2023,” said CEO Matthijs Storm.
