“On May 9th a new chapter began for Dietsmann as I stepped down as CEO.

During my 45 years at the helm, I led the company from its inception to what it is today: a leading provider of inspection and maintenance services to the energy sector.

I am now handing the reigns over to Cesare Canevese, but it is by no means farewell as I will remain Chairman of the management board.

I have great trust in his ability to the drive the company forward, and this confidence is shared by the supervisory and the shareholders who unanimously endorsed this decision.

This next chapter will see the integration of our traditional business with the innovative technologies that Dietsmann has been investing in for the last 7 years. It will see predictive maintenance take a leading role in our business. This is Dietsmann 4.0.

I am proud of what has been achieved over the past 45 years. All this was achieved with the unwavering support of my late partner, Maurice Smulders, our clients, and the hard work and dedication of thousands of Dietsmann employees.

Thank you to our clients, partners, colleagues, employees and friends for your confidence.

Yours sincerely,

Peter Kütemann”
