Amsterdam, the Netherlands, July 18, 2006 - Ahold today announced
that the Ahold Supervisory Board has nominated Tom de Swaan for
appointment as one of its members. De Swaan is the former Chief
Financial Officer of ABN AMRO Bank N.V. His nomination for
appointment will be on the agenda of the next general meeting of
Ahold shareholders.

De Swaan (60) will fill the vacancy to be left by Jan Hommen, who has
been on the Ahold Supervisory Board and chairman of the Audit
Committee since 2003. Hommen will not be standing for re-election at
the end of his term following the Annual General Meeting of
Shareholders in 2007, due to a restriction on the number of
directorships under the Tabaksblat Code.

De Swaan was appointed to the Executive Board of ABN AMRO Bank N.V.
in 1999, and served as Chief Financial Officer between 1999 and 2006.
He holds several other supervisory or non-executive directorships
including Koninklijke DSM N.V., GlaxoSmithKline plc, Financial
Services Authority London and Zurich Financial Services.

The Ahold Supervisory Board currently comprises René Dahan (Chairman,
Chairman of the Selection and Appointment Committee, and former
Executive Vice President of Exxon Mobil Corporation); Jan Hommen
(Vice Chairman, Chairman of the Audit Committee and former CFO and
vice chairman of the board of Royal Philips Electronics N.V.); Karen
de Segundo (former CEO of Shell International Renewables); Derk
Doijer (Chairman of the Remuneration Committee and former executive
director of SHV Holdings); Myra Hart (a professor who holds the MBA
Class of 1961 Chair of Entrepreneurship at Harvard Business School,
and a member of the founding team of Staples the Office Superstore);
Stephanie Shern (formerly vice chair and global director of Retail
