Daphne de Kluis, CEO of Commercial Banking and a member of ABN AMRO’s Executive Committee, announced that she will be pursuing her career outside ABN AMRO. The process of finding a successor has been initiated.
Robert Swaak, CEO of ABN AMRO: “I want to thank Daphne for her valuable contributions to ABN AMRO for the past 24 years, especially in her role as a member of the Executive Committee since 2017. As an ExCo member and CEO of Commercial Banking, Daphne has always shown entrepreneurship and a genuine passion and dedication to our leadership, colleagues and customers. Daphne is a role model for many women and men in our company.”
Daphne de Kluis, CEO of Commercial Banking: “It is with mixed feelings that I will leave ABN AMRO after being part of the ABN AMRO family for so long. ABN AMRO is executing its reviewed strategy and I’m proud of the journey the bank has made. I believe all the levers of success are present to deliver value for all our stakeholders. While sincerely grateful for and humbled by everything ABN AMRO has given me, I’m also excited to start a new chapter in my career and am looking forward to that.”
Until 30 September 2021, Daphne will be fully committed to ABN AMRO, also to facilitate an orderly transition to her successor, once selected. Further announcements on her succession will be made in due course.
