We have organised the three distribution channels in the following segments: Direct & Institutional, Pharmacies Netherlands and Pharmacies Poland. In Direct & Institutional these channels are clustered, as they interlock closely with each other and are mostly managed on a combined basis. The institutional channel offers an entry to the market for direct deliveries. Also, the group companies within the two channels combine their purchasing power and jointly utilise a growing range of private label products. This segmentation is the basis of our internal management reporting and therefore also of our financial reporting.
The members of the Management Board and the Executive Vice Presidents jointly form the Executive Board, which is responsible for the company’s operations. Marc van Gelder is the Chief Executive Officer. Hans Janssen is a member of the Management Board and Chief Financial Officer. Gerben Klein Nulent is responsible as Executive Vice President for the pharmacy activities in the Netherlands and Poland. Mediq Pharma Services also reports to him in view of its strong dependence on the infrastructure of Mediq Groothandel.

Marcel is responsible for the activities in the Netherlands (only direct), Germany, the USA, France and Hungary. Jesper is responsible for the activities in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Switzerland and the Netherlands (only institutional).
