- The Board of Directors of Telenet Group Holding NV (hereafter 'Telenet' or 'the Company') took note of the resignation of Ms. Angela McMullen as director of Telenet's Board and as member of its Audit Committee. Pursuant to section 18.4 of Telenet's articles of association, the other directors decided to co-opt Ms. Suzanne Schoettger as new Telenet director, and to appoint her as member of Telenet's Audit Committee, both with immediate effect. The next general meeting of Telenet will decide on the definitive appointment of Ms. Schoettger.
Suzanne Schoettger (°1968) has worked with Liberty Global and its predecessors since April 1999. Currently, Ms. Schoettger holds the position of Liberty Global's Chief Audit & Compliance Officer. Prior to that, she held various positions in financial reporting, auditing and internal controls working across Liberty Global's global footprint. Before joining Liberty Global, Ms. Schoettger worked in the audit practice of Arthur Andersen. Ms. Schoettger holds a Masters in Professional Accounting from the University of Texas at Austin and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Hastings College. In addition, she has completed Harvard Business School's General Management Program.
Bert De Graeve, chairman of the Board of Directors: "I would first of all like to thank my colleague Angela for her valuable contribution to Telenet's Board of Directors and its Audit Committee over the past three and a half years. As current CFO and Managing Director - Operations for Liberty Global Content Investments, Angela has played an important role in shaping Telenet's premium entertainment and content strategy including recent investments. I'm furthermore pleased that we are able to co-opt Ms. Suzanne Schoettger as new director to the Board and as member to the Audit Committee given her broad experience in financial reporting, auditing and internal controls. As Liberty Global's current Chief Audit & Compliance Officer, I'm convinced that she'll be a true value added for Telenet's Audit Committee and the Board of Directors. We look forward working with her."
