The Maitland Consultancy has named former KLM Royal Dutch Airline IR chief Jantiene Klein Roseboom as head of its investor relations division.
Klein Roseboom takes over in the role from agency chairman Angus Maitland with a view to leading IR expansion both in the UK and abroad.
One of her main remits will be to develop a strategy to work with marketing services group Euro RSCG, Maitland's recently-acquired partner.
The joint venture with Euro RSCG comes as a result of Maitland's deal with French communications giant Havas Advertising - an agreement which allows Euro RSCG the option to take a stake of less than 40 per cent of London-based Maitland.
Klein Roseboom, who reports directly to Maitland, will take an active role in the agency's expansion, which is set to begin with Paris, Frankfurt and Milan, largely co-locating with Euro RSCG offices.
Klein Roseboom left KLM after 14 years, during which time she had spells as commercial planning manager, director of corporate strategy - mergers and acquisitions, director of international revenue management - marketing, and most recently vice-president and IR officer.
At KLM in Amsterdam, she has been replaced by Marleijne Wijen and Emilie van Karnebeek, who have jointly been appointed as directors of investor relations, overseeing all global IR for the airline.
Wijen, who has been with KLM since last August, is promoted from her previous post as IR officer. Van Karnebeek joined KLM more than four years ago and is promoted from her former role as director, corporate finance.
Both report to KLM chief finance officer Rob Abrahamsen.
