His dedication and leadership have made a major impact throughout his long 37-year career in the company. In the future, I will miss him for his character and the insight he brought to the boardroom, however, he will remain our CFO until the end of September, ensuring a smooth transition. On behalf of Philips’ Executive Committee, I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

“This is an exciting time for Charlotte to join Philips. Her strong MedTech and pharma knowledge spanning Europe, Asia, and the US, as well as her extensive finance experience, coupled with her energy and passion for the healthcare industry, make her an ideal fit for the role.”

In welcoming Charlotte, we are broadening the diversity of the Board of Management while further deepening the industry expertise of the team to help drive the plan to create value with sustainable impact.”

Abhijit Bhattacharya, CFO of Royal Philips commented: “After serving Philips and leading great teams for many years, helping to shape the future of the company, the time is right for me to retire from the company in September.
