Citi is pleased to announce the appointment of Pim Nederpel as Citi Country Officer (CCO) for Belgium. Pim replaces Brendan Carney, who has been serving as Citi’s Head of Poland Consumer Banking since May.
As CCO, Pim serves the critical role of protecting and leading the Citi franchise in Belgium. The CCO role is the face of Citi to key stakeholders in Belgium and across the global Citi network. The CCO is accountable for franchise governance and management. This includes regulatory relationships, Public Sector business and government relationships, Compliance and AML, Human Resources, Corporate and Community Affairs, Crisis Management and Business performance oversight.
The safety and soundness of the franchise is the principal area of focus for the CCO. Soundness comes from promoting a culture of control and adherence to both Citi and regulatory (home and host) policies/principles. Safety includes having a robust continuity of business plan that is known and understood throughout the franchise, and leading Citi’s operations in times of crisis. The CCO also supports the Citi Foundation on local programs. As Citi’s senior person in Belgium, Pim will maintain and reinforce client relationships at all levels of the organization.
Pim joined Citi in 2010 as Head of CTS for The Netherlands. Prior to joining Citi, Pim served as CEO for BNY Mellon Asset Servicing B.V., a Global Custodian and Dutch licenced bank from 2007 to 2009 and its predecessor organization ABN AMRO Mellon, where he was CFO from 2005 to 2007. Pim also spent 16 years of his career at Euronext, serving in a number of progressively more senior roles, including Executive Director for Euronext Amsterdam, Executive Director for Euronext Information Services and Deputy CEO for Clearnet SA. He began his career with Wallast en Stam Chartered Accountants. Pim holds a degree in business administration and economics and completed an advanced graduate program for Chartered Financial Analyst.
