Zeewolde, The Netherlands, 1 June 2011 – Spyker Cars N.V. (Spyker) announces that Hans Go – CFO of Spyker – steps down as statutory director of Spyker effective per 1 July 2011.
With the planned sale of the Spyker sports car business to Vladimir Antonov, the remaining activities of the Spyker group will comprise only the Saab activities. As a result, the role of Spyker’s CFO will be assumed by the new Saab Automobile CFO, whose appointment will be announced later this year.
Since Rob Schuyt is temporarily acting as Saab Automobile’s CFO, and was recently appointed a statutory director of Spyker, he will also temporarily assume the role of CFO of the Spyker group. Mr. Go will remain involved as advisor until the end of the year to support the management with various transitional projects within Spyker and Saab Automobile.
I don’t think that Spyker Cars NV needs two CFO. Why has Mr. Go resigned and not Mr Schuyt, or why has Mr. Go resigned when they are searching for a CFD for Saab nobody knows, but the fact is that Swedish Automobile NV will only need one CFO.
