TNT Express exceeds female board quota


8 September 2011 - TNT Express is the only listed company on the Amsterdam stock exchange to meet the 30 per cent female boardroom quota adopted by the Netherlands, which will become legally binding from January 2012. Women currently account for 38 per cent of executive and supervisory board members of TNT Express, compared to an average of 9.2 per cent in average for Dutch listed companies. This is one of the conclusions of the "Dutch Female Board Index 2011", which was published today by Mijntje Lückerath-Rovers, a professor of corporate governance at Nyenrode Business University. According to the survey, more than half of the Dutch listed companies (55 per cent) still do not have any female board member.
