The Supervisory Board proposes to appoint Mr. Antonio J. Campo as member of the Supervisory Board of Fugro at the upcoming annual general meeting (AGM) to be held on 6 May 2014.

Most recently, he was President for the Latin America region, including Mexico, while he served earlier as President of Europe, Africa, Russia and Central Asia and as President of integrated project management, being responsible for all integrated projects worldwide. From 2009 until 2012, Mr. Campo was Chief Executive Officer of Integra Group, a listed oilfield services company, mainly active in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Currently he serves as vice chairman on the board of Basin Holdings, a privately held, global, independent and integrated oilfield supply and services company.

If Campo is appointed, he will succeed John Colligan who will step down from the Supervisory Board in 2015, as at that time his third four-year term expires. Campo was selected because of his cultural background, his senior management roles in the global oil and gas services business and especially his experience in emerging markets and with large multidisciplinary projects.

Furthermore the Supervisory Board announced that Marion Helmes has decided to step down as member of the Supervisory Board, at the end of the upcoming AGM. She has been a member since May 2009. Helmes is Speaker of the Management Board and CFO of Celesio AG, a company that is currently involved in a merger process. She concluded that this does not allow her anymore to spend sufficient time on her role as member of the Supervisory Board of Fugro.
