Witteveen+Bos: positive 2021 annual figures, change in Supervisory Board

Consultancy and engineering firm Witteveen+Bos closed 2021 with revenues of EUR 160.3 million (2020: 155.8). Net profit was EUR 18.3 million (2020: 17.9) with a net profit margin of 11.4 % (2020: 11.5 %). This means that, financially, 2021 was a good year. At the annual general meeting (AGM) on Monday 11 April 2022, the annual financial statements were officially adopted. The AGM also approved the nomination by the Supervisory Board (RvC) of Peter Reinders as its new member. He succeeds Gerard van de Aast, who is stepping down.

Managing director Wouter Bijman: ‘2021 was another unusual year, owing to corona, which again demanded a lot from our people. That’s why our financial result is especially impressive. Nevertheless, we’re generally taking a cautious approach to things. It’s not yet clear what the terrible war in Ukraine and its economic effects will mean for Witteveen+Bos. We’re also witnessing increasing shortages in the labour market and rising costs due to high inflation.’

Bijman looks ahead: ‘We’re pleased with the greater freedom of movement; we were all in need of it. This freedom is important for collaborating effectively on major social challenges such as the energy transition, climate and biodiversity, and the replacement and renovation programme. We also want to maintain our focus on the development of our professionals, on forging the right teams, and on continuing to collaborate effectively with our chain partners.’
