Family of entrepreneurs, of which several members are among the richest people in the Netherlands. Frits Fentener van Vlissingen (1882–1962) worked in the Steenkolen Handels Vereniging (SHV, Coal Trade Association) of Daniel van Beuningen, his brother-in-law. In 1929, he founded the Algemene Kunstzijde Unie (AKU), a forerunner of Akzo No bel. He was also one of the founding fathers of Royal Dutch Air lines KLM. After World War II, in 1954, the Fentener van Vlissingens took over SHV. Of his three grandsons—brothers Frits (1933–2006), John (1939– ), and Paul (1941–2006)—only John did not made a career in SHV. He started BCD Holdings, one of world’s largest business travel organizations. Paul wrote a few books about his experiences as an entrepreneur. The next genera tion of the Fenteners in SHVis represented by Frits’s daughter An neriek (1961– ), who became president-commissioner in 2005.
