Arcadis Announces Change in Leadership: Neil McArthur Leaves as CEO, Renier Vree Appointed Interim CEO

Amsterdam, 27 October 2016 - Arcadis
(EURONEXT: ARCAD)
, Arcadis today announced that Neil McArthur, CEO since May 2012, is leaving
the company by mutual agreement. Arcadis' Supervisory Board and Mr. McArthur
agreed to a separation because of a difference of opinion on Arcadis' path
moving forward. Consequently, the Supervisory Board will move to appoint a
new CEO for the next stage of Arcadis' development. Renier Vree, currently
Arcadis CFO, will serve as CEO on an interim basis with immediate effect.

"Neil McArthur has provided Arcadis with excellent leadership since he became
CEO in 2012," said Niek Hoek, Chairman of the Arcadis Supervisory Board. "On
behalf of the Supervisory Board, Executive Board and all of the Arcadis
people, I want to thank Neil for his vision and leadership. Neil and the
Supervisory Board have agreed that it is the right time for a new leader to
take Arcadis forward. We will begin a search internally and externally for a
new CEO. We are pleased that Renier Vree has accepted the interim CEO role.
With Renier's knowledge and experience of Arcadis and its stakeholders, we
are confident that he is best positioned to lead the company in the interim."

"I am proud of what we have achieved as a company over the past five years,"
said Neil McArthur. "Together, we have expanded our core business organically
and through acquisitions, going from a EUR 2 billion 15,000 people
organization in 2012, to a EUR 3.4 billion global multinational with 27,000
people under a single global brand, with a collaborative structure and
culture. Now it's time for someone else to lead Arcadis through the next
stage of our journey. I have no doubt that our people will continue to
deliver exceptional and sustainable client solutions, and improve quality of
life across the globe."

Arcadis will honour its contractual obligations with Mr. McArthur, which
includes payment of a one-year base salary (EUR 630,000).
