The CIMMYT community welcomes Cornelis Fransiscus Broekhuijse as the newest member of the CIMMYT Board of Trustees. The son of a farmer and a native of the Netherlands, Broekhuijse developed a passion for agriculture at a young age, which was sustained throughout his 33-year career with Rabobank, an international bank committed to food and agribusiness and a leader in sustainability-oriented banking. Until his retirement from Rabobank in 2009, Broekhuijse held various important positions at the bank, including executive vice president and later senior executive vice president of Rabobank Americas. For the past year, Broekhuijse has served as Chairman of the Board for two Rabobank subsidiaries in the US. We look forward to benefitting from his knowledge and experience.
