EINDHOVEN, 16-May-2018 — /EuropaWire/ — DLL, a global provider of asset-based financial solutions, announced today the appointment of Mike Janse as Chief Operating Officer (COO) and member of the Executive Board of DLL. This new appointment takes immediate effect.
Janse joined DLL in 2004 and has held several leadership roles within Finance and Operations, as well as international assignments in Europe and Latin America. Most recently, he served as Senior Vice President for the Latin American Region, overseeing business activities and operations in Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico. During his tenure, the region grew substantially, exhibiting strong financial results and exceptional scores in both customer satisfaction and employee engagement.
Prior to joining DLL, Janse spent over 7 years working at the global audit, tax and advisory firm, KPMG, with assignments in both The Netherlands and Brazil. Janse will succeed Carlo van Kemenade, who left DLL at the close of 2017 to become CEO and Chairman of the Board for Obvion, a large mortgage provider in The Netherlands, also owned by Rabobank.
“We are very fortunate to be able to quickly appoint such a strong internal candidate to this vitally important leadership role,” stated Bill Stephenson, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board at DLL. “This speaks volumes about the breadth and depth of talent within our company. I look forward to having Mike on the Executive Board, and welcome his input as we steer the company on a path of continued growth, strong financial performance and meaningful contributions to our stakeholders.”
“Our global network of more than 30 offices is a key differentiator and a significant part of our value proposition,” stated Janse. “This role is close to my heart, having previously managed local DLL offices in both Europe and Latin America. I am excited about the potential that we have to further develop a first class experience for our customers, and deliver innovative technologies that will make it even easier for them to conduct business with DLL.”
