I am a technology executive with over 25 years of experience in the financial services industry, and telecommunications & internet. Since 2009, after several roles in finance, product management and operations, I have fully focussed my career on technology.
I find the impact that the IT has on the customer experience very motivating. My leadership style is a combination of strong people focus and content leadership.
After successful implementation of an Agile Way of Working, a DevOps organization model and the implementation of an automated continuous delivery pipeline, the challenge in my current position is to make this a globally scalable and sustainable model including business participation.
As CIO for ING Bank I am responsible for the current and the future IT of ING Bank, which means meeting todays requirements of our stakeholders (customer, regulator and stakeholders) and continuous improvement of the IT function as it is the core capability for delivering the Think Forward strategy of ING to drive towards a global banking platform.
