Koos Timmermans to step down as CFO and member of the Executive Board of ING Group

RELATED TOPICS​

Koos Timmermans will step down from his position as chief financial officer and member of the Executive Board of ING Group and will leave the company.

Timmermans’ resignation follows the announcement on 4 September 2018 of the settlement regarding shortcomings in the execution of customer due diligence policies to prevent financial economic crime at ING Netherlands. During the investigated period (2010-2016) Timmermans was a member of the Management Board Banking and for several years end-responsible for ING Netherlands.
 
“We deeply regret the shortcomings found and take this matter very seriously,” says Hans Wijers, chairman of the Supervisory Board of ING. “Given the seriousness of the matter and the many reactions among stakeholders since the announcement and in the interest of the bank, we came to the conclusion it is appropriate that responsibility is taken at Executive Board level. We have a serious task ahead of us and the Executive Board is fully committed to completing the various initiatives we have started at ING Netherlands to further strengthen our handling of compliance risks.
 
“We want to thank Koos for his many years of dedication to ING. His efforts to align the bank’s balance sheet with new and upcoming regulation have strongly contributed to the robust financial foundation ING has today. On behalf of all at ING, we wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”
 
Timmermans joined ING in 1996 and was a member of the executive team since 2007 when he was appointed as the company’s first chief risk officer on the Executive Board. In 2011 he became vice-chairman of the Management Board Banking. In 2014 he assumed responsibility for the Market Leaders division. He was appointed chief financial officer in 2017.
 
The search process for a successor has been started. In order to facilitate an orderly transition, Timmermans has agreed to remain in his position until the succession process, including approval by regulators and shareholders, has been completed.
