The Lieutenant Governor of Bonaire and the Ministry of Economic Affairs commissioned a study from SEO into corporate governance at Water & Energy Company Bonaire N.V. (WEB).

The aim of the study is (i) to gain understanding of how corporate governance has performed at WEB during the past period and (ii) to do recommendations on improving corporate governance for the future.

The study was carried out by Koert van Buiren (Project Leader, SEO) and Ludo van Halderen (independent consultant). Koert van Buiren’s CV can be found here:

Ludo van Halderen was brought into the project by SEO on account of his knowledge and expertise in the area of corporate governance, in particular at energy companies, and his previous involvement in research into energy supplies on Bonaire. Ludo van Halderen currently holds various supervisory directorships and previously chaired the board of Nuon (January 2002-April 2008) and the supervisory board of Econcern (July 2008-May 2009).
