Extraordinary Board member Mark van Twist to leave the Netherlands Court of Audit on 1 May
Having been sworn in as an extraordinary member of the Board of the Netherlands Court of Audit on 17 August 2004, Mark van Twist has decided to leave the Court of Audit on 1 May of this year. His Majesty King Willem-Alexander has granted Van Twist an honourable discharge at his own request.
In addition to serving as an extraordinary member of the Board of the Netherlands Court of Audit, Mark van Twist is also a Professor of Public Administration at Rotterdam’s Erasmus University, specialising in executive and policy advice in a public-private setting. He is also the Dean and a Board member of the Netherlands School of Public Administration.
Arno Visser, the President of the Board of the Netherlands Court of Audit, said, “I would like to thank Mark for his outstanding services to the Court, his inspiration and his ideas, both in public and behind the scenes, whether in relation to audits or in response to questions from all corners of the Court.”
Extraordinary Board members can be called upon to undertake certain activities, such as supervising audits, performing external activities or deputising for board members. Following the departure of Mark van Twist, the Court will still have two extraordinary Board members, viz. Paul Doop and Hanny Kemna.
