At Adyen responsible for connecting the global growth strategy of Adyen with the requirements of the financial regulations and the related governance, both internally and externally. When joining Adyen in May 2016 I had the task to lead the project to obtain a bank license; this has been granted by ECB already in April 2017.  With the team we continuously interpret global regulation for our specific business, such as Brexit, US regulation on money transmitting, Singapore Payments Bill, GDPR and PSD2. During the first 6 years of my career I have been a lawyer focusing on enterprise law and advocated in court in multiple cases. After that, at DNB I had several management roles in supervisory teams on financial institutions and as a policy advisor I was project lead for the pilot ‘Culture and behavior of financial institutions’. DNB now has an expert center that does thematic investigations on these topics.

Playing ping-pong with colleagues is good to clear my mind; tennis, Bikram yoga and growing tomatoes in our garden do the trick as well.
