After chairing the €202 billion ($236 billion) PFZW for a year and a half, Carla Moonen is resigning effective November 1.

Although the Dutch healthcare pension fund and Moonen cited an amicable split, the departing chair said she continued to notice that her skills would be better suited in an environment “where change can go faster” than while she was working at PFZW.

Moonen also noted that her expertise would work better in a place with “more space for entrepreneurship and innovation as well as the implementation of a practical sustainability agenda.”

Her peers at PFZW commended her for her work. Albert Vink, its deputy chair, said Moonen performed her duties “skillfully and with acumen.”

Moonen took the job in March 2017, replacing Hans Alders. Her prior role was chair of Brabantse Delta.

She also chairs the Royal Dutch Association of Engineers and is an executive board member of VNO-NCW, a Dutch job agency. She is also a board member of the World Pension Summit and on the supervisory board of MVO Nederland, a socially responsible entrepreneurship organization.

Moonen will stay on the World Pension Summit and VNO-NCW boards.
