Dennis Versteeg, Compliance Innovation Lead / RegTech Innovation Board, ING Bank, Amsterdam, Netherlands
‘Dennis Versteeg is leading the Compliance Innovation department at ING Bank. In this role he is responsible for exploring regulatory challenges and finding, proving and implementing innovative solutions to improve on these challenges. In his second role as chairman of the RegTech Innovation Board, which brings together RegTech demand and supply, his working domain expands across the entire bank. Fuelled by priorities set by the demand members and supported by market knowledge and capabilities on the supply side, multiple RegTech solutions have successfully been rolled-out within ING over the last years.
Before joining ING, for over 20 years Dennis worked as a consultant in the Financial Services industry. His projects have taken him across the globe, working in 25 countries so far, usually in the role of Project/Programme Manager. Since the financial crisis of 2008 and the resulting regulatory tsunami, Dennis has specialised in Regulatory topics, building up specific knowledge on e.g. MiFID II, EMIR, SFTR, MMSR, BMR, SEPA, FATCA and PSD. After the implementation of MiFID II he changed to his current RegTech role.
His main motivator is to continuously challenge and improve upon the status quo; the main question should be ‘how can we do things better’ rather than holding on to the ‘past and proven’ way of working. New technologies and innovations are giving us the tools to do so; through the process of trial and error the solutions that give the best contribution to the business will be filtered out.
In his free time Dennis likes to spend time with his wife and two daughters, travelling to new destinations and exploring new cultures. He is also a big Formula 1-fan and plays (badly) an occasional game of golf.
