“With his background and drive, I am convinced that Peter will further expand ING’s strong position in the Netherlands. Based on his proven track record, knowledge, and experience in the field of digitization, technology, and transformation, we made a very conscious choice with Peter as Ruud’s successor.
Peter is the right person to take ING to the next level in our ambition to be a leading mobile bank in the Netherlands while bringing sustainable progress for all. I am excited to set the example of a CIO becoming a country manager. This shows our strong commitment to be the digital leader in banking,” said Pinar Abay, responsible for Market Leaders within ING’s Management Board Banking, which includes ING Netherlands.

He navigated ING Netherlands through the challenging times of Covid19. His people-oriented and respectful style of leadership ensured that ING is in a strong position in the Netherlands. I would like to thank Ruud very much for this.”
