Nicolaï also resigns his chairmanship of the Rotterdam Port Promotion Council (RPPC) promotion organization. Last week it became clear that he has a very aggressive cancer that can no longer be treated. Nicolaï held the positions since January 1 this year.

Deltalinqs director Bas Janssen says that there is not yet an active search for a successor. “We are now doing nothing out of humanity. We have good governance and two vice-chairmen, so there is no immediate need now to find a successor. ” He expects to start the follow-up procedure in a few months.
