"It is with deep regret that I leave this board. My commitments in the energy sector and different additional duties that I have assumed since I joined the Delhaize Group Board in 2011 are requiring more attention than I initially believed. I have very much enjoyed working with great colleagues on the Board and wish the company well in its future growth," Hansen said in a statement.

"A prominent figure in the European business world with impressive experience gained outside of our sector, Jean-Pierre Hansen brought a very thoughtful and highly valued contribution to the board and he will be greatly missed," said Mats Jansson, Delhaize Group chairman.
