New chairman of board of Thomas Cook named

Belgian national Frank Meysman, to take over from Michael Beckett

Frank Meysman, aged 59 and a Belgian national, has been named as the next chairman of the board of Thomas Cook when the current chairman Michael Beckett retires. He will take the post on December 1, although he will join the board before that, on October 1. Meyersen has experience at the top of a number of international companies, including Procter & Gamble, Douwe Egberts and, most recently, the Sara Lee Corporation where he has been executive vice president and a member of the board of directors for the last 15 years. According to reports, he has been known to focus especially on marketing and brand-building.
“The group faces a number of significant challenges, but in the medium to longer term we will be well positioned to build shareholder value on the back of premium brands,” Meysman commented on the appointment.
