Thijs van der Heide, the top man of the online platform RUMAG, will resign immediately. The decision was made after a fuss about a controversial clothing line. Various media write this based on a statement from RUMAG itself.
The reason for the fuss came after criticism in an item from Zondag met Lubach . Rumag was accused of making money from t-shirts of the Red Cross. CEO Thijs van der Heide certainly denied the allegations, but the storm of criticism did not pass.
The company writes that the decision was taken in close consultation. Ferdi Buijsrogge has been appointed as the new CEO of the online platform.
