May 16, 2014 - ARCADIS (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the leading global natural and built
asset design and consultancy firm, announced today that during the Annual
General Meeting of Shareholders that was held today several (re) appointments
were made to its Supervisory Board and its Executive Board. Mr. Ian Grice was
reappointed to the Supervisory Board for a period of four years. Mr. Stephan
Ritter was appointed to the Executive Board for a period of four years,
succeeding Mr. Friedrich Schneider and Mr. Renier Vree, Chief Financial
Officer, was reappointed to the Executive Board also for a period of four
years.

Mr. Ian Grice (1953) has been a member of the Supervisory Board of ARCADIS
since 2010. Before that he was Group Chief Executive of Alfred McAlpine Plc
and held several senior management positions at John Mowlem Construction Plc.

Mr. S. Ritter (1968), a German national joined ARCADIS in September 2013 as
CEO of ARCADIS Continental Europe. Mr. Ritter holds a business degree of the
University of Paderborn in Germany, having studied in Seville, Spain and
Nottingham, UK. In 1999 he joined General Electric (GE), where he worked
until 2013 in various management positions. In 2009, he became General
Manager of Renewable Energy Europe and Managing Director of GE Wind. This
business considerably grew revenues and profitability under his leadership.
Mr. Ritter is a Master Black Belt Six Sigma and has led various global GE Six
Sigma projects.

Mr. Renier Vree (1964) has been Chief Financial Officer for ARCADIS since
2010. Before joining ARCADIS he was the CFO for Philips Lighting and held
several senior financial management positions in Asia and the US for
Dutch-based Philips NV.

Neil McArthur, CEO of ARCADIS said: "We appreciate Friedrich Schneider's
contributions and are confident that with Stephan Ritter we have found a
strong successor. He has already created considerable value for us since
being appointed as CEO in Continental Europe, a role he will continue to
perform in the interim until a successor has been appointed."

George Nethercutt, Vice Chairman of the Supervisory Board said: "This was the
last meeting that was chaired by our esteemed colleague Rijnhard van Tets,
who has been a member of our Supervisory Board for 12 years and its Chairman
for 10 years. We acknowledge him for the significant contributions he
delivered towards the successful growth of the company and thank him most
sincerely for his leadership during this long period."

As announced in April, Mr. Van Tets will be succeeded by Mr. Niek Hoek as
Chairman, once the latter steps down as CEO of Delta Lloyd. Until such time
Mr. Maarten Schönfeld will act as interim Chairman of the Supervisory Board.

Shareholders voted in favor of the company's dividend proposal of €0.57 per
ordinary share, a 10% increase over last year's dividend. All other
resolutions that were brought up for vote were also accepted by the meeting.
