/ / What I do at Synechron

Business consulting with a focus on Regulatory and Compliance

At Synechron I am a business consultant with a focus on Regulatory and Compliance topics. I usually operate as an expert advisor to our clients, helping them understand the impact of regulations and identify the gaps in their organization that need to be plugged in order to become compliant. I work with them to help set up and implement policies and procedures that enable compliance. Within Synechron Business Consulting, I am a managing consultant in the Amsterdam Regulation Practice. In this role, I act as a mentor to junior staff.

/ / Why I joined Synechron

Deep domain understanding and knowledge

As a regulator, I found myself becoming increasingly interested in helping and advising the institutions that I supervised. The reason I joined the Synechron team was that they had a deep EMIR knowledge. I saw firsthand how they put a derailed application process back on track, and I liked the way the consultants presented themselves and interacted with me. I am very happy that I was given the opportunity to join Synechron to add to these qualities.

/ / MY SKILLs, qualifications and experience

Master’s degree in International & European Law and experience of over 10 years on regulatory topics

Prior to joining, I worked for the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM). Having worked for over 10 years on regulatory topics both at Synechron and the AFM, I bring along a considerable amount of expertise with regards to financial market infrastructure and financial regulation. Areas of expertise include transaction reporting, central clearing, trading platforms, and interacting with regulators. I combine a legal background – holding a Master’s degree in International & European Law – with a sense of economic reality and a pragmatic hands-on approach.

/ / My personal interests

Family, gardening, cycling and sports

My number one interest is human relations; therefore, I spent most of my time with my family (my wife and two young daughters, two and four), and friends. I recently discovered a passion for gardening both inside and around the house. Furthermore, I am a great cycling fan. I have my own bike which I like to ride – with my greatest achievement so far going up the Alp d’Huez three times in one day to raise money for cancer research. Other sports I do (occasionally) are football, yoga, and running.
