NEW YORK, NY, U.S.A., 12-Dec-2016 — /EuropaWire/ — With a new head office opened this week, ING New York is embracing a ‘new and modern way of working’.
Following on from the recent opening of a new London office, the new Americas head office in New York City allows employees and managers to work side-by-side in an open work floor. This allows for greater collaboration between colleagues.
The new office has smart elevators and state-of-the-art IT which promotes flexible work solutions and paperless efficiencies.
“The new Americas head office in New York City is more than just a shiny, new office space. It also enables us to work together in a more open and collaborative style,” said Americas country head Rudolf Molkenboer.
“This is something we have been looking forward to.”
An official opening was held on 7 December with Wholesale Banking clients and others joining in celebrations.
Ralph Hamers, CEO of ING Group, and Isabel Fernandez, Head of Wholesale Banking also attended the opening.
“I’m proud of what we’ve built up in that time together with you, our clients and partners,” said Ralph.
“It’s a presence we’ve built up not by trying to be everything for everyone, but by focusing on areas where our specialised experience and expertise can add real value.”
ING in the United States specialises in energy, infrastructure trade finance and servicing companies’ global financing needs through its international network of more than 40 countries.
It has served Wholesale Banking clients in the United States for more than 30 years and has offices in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles and New York. The New York office employs around 500 employees.
