Adriaan Visser will stop after this season as chairman of PEC Zwolle. The 69-year-old director has then worked for the Eredivisie club for twelve years.
“This is a well-considered decision. By the time of my retirement I will be seventy years old and my other work activities require more and more attention,” Visser explains his upcoming departure at site from PEC Zwolle.
“Despite my forthcoming departure, I would like to emphasize that I will be working with full dedication in the coming period to realize a tenth season in a row in the Eredivisie. I will also continue to make efforts to limit the consequences of the corona crisis for PEC Zwolle as much as possible.”
Visser recently announced his forthcoming departure during the general meeting of shareholders (AGM). At that time, the club started the search for a new chairman.
Under Visser’s chairmanship, PEC Zwolle grew into a stable Eredivisionist. The ‘Blauwvingers’ made history in 2014 by winning the TOTO KNVB Cup for the first time and later that year also conquering the Johan Cruijff Shield.
This Eredivisie season is still difficult for PEC. The team of trainer John Stegeman only took six points in the first seven games, four more than Fortuna Sittard.
