Published on: 15 April 2020

Anne-Marie Le Doux-Janssen starts this May 1 as head of APG’s GroeiFabriek. Le Doux currently holds the position of head of Agile Center for Enablement at APG and previously worked at APG in IT, change and HR positions. She studied International Business and Change Management at the Maastricht University. She succeeds Inge Murrer.


The GroeiFabriek was launched in 2015 to enhance innovation within APG and across the pensions industry. Now, five years later, the focus shifts from technological and exploratory experiments with a longer term horizon to experiments providing business value for APG and its fund clients in the medium-term and focus, among other things, on the new pension contract and innovations regarding the needs of participants, employers and funds.

Francine van Dierendonck, member of APG’s executive board and responsible for Participant and Employers Services (Deelnemer- en Werkgeversservices -DWS), Strategy and Communications: “APG is transforming from an administration-oriented organization into a participant-oriented organization: a controlled pension provider that is continuously improving and innovating with the needs of the participant in mind. We want to be perceived as a reliable guide, offering people accessible insight into their income now, in the near future and later on. By giving more focus, the GroeiFabriek will contribute more concretely to our strategy and the strategic themes. Executive power and co-creation in partnerships are important priorities in this respect. This way we are prepared for the future that will be characterized by the changes in the pension contract and the pension scheme. I am extremely pleased that Anne-Marie will be strengthening DWS and the GroeiFabriek. Given her knowledge and expertise, drive and attention to people, she is the right person to build upon the success of the GroeiFabriek and to take it forward to the next stage with a renewed focus.”

Anne-Marie Le Doux-Janssen: “I am very keen on making a concrete contribution that is felt by our clients directly. And that’s possible at the GroeiFabriek where we experiment with new products, processes and services in order to continue our delivery of added value for our participants, employers and funds.”
