Wim Mijs
European Banking Federation

I am Chief Digital Officer at Van Lanschot Kempen. Van Lanschot Kempen is a specialist, independent wealth manager dedicated to the creation and preservation of wealth. Dating back to 1737, it is the oldest independent financial institution in the Netherlands, operating 4 business lines under 3 labels: Van Lanschot (private banking), Evi (digital investment advice) and Kempen (asset management and merchant banking). The CDO is in charge of the digital transformation of Van Lanschot Kempen, including all business lines. We are driving this transformation on multiple levels: - introducing / enhancing digital client channels and advisor tooling, as well as automating internal processes, - using state-of-the-art technology (through our own devops teams and in cooperation with fintech solution providers) - while introducing a scaled agile way of working. I have extensive experience in the (private) banking sector, having served in leadership roles ranging from business development to operations – in incumbent banks but also founding a fintech startup. Wim Mijs (1964) was appointed Chief Executive Officer of the European Banking Federation in 2014.   Between 2007 and 2014 Wim served as CEO of the Dutch banking association NVB. During this tenure he transformed the NVB into a modern industry association, positioning it as the key representative of the banking sector in the wake of the financial crisis. Wim studied law at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands, specialising in European and International law. After his studies he worked at the International Court of Arbitration at the Peace Palace in The Hague. In 1993 he joined ABN AMRO in Amsterdam before moving to Brussels to head up the bank’s EU liaison office. Wim moved back to The Hague in 2002 where he became the Head of Government Affairs for ABN AMRO. Wim is a member of the Advisory Board of the BBVA Center for Financial Education and Capability, the Industry Chair of the European Parliamentary Financial Services Forum and member of the Advisory board of Leiden Law School. Between 2011 and 2018, Wim held various institutional roles within the international and European financial/banking community: chairman of the International Banking Federation; chairman of the Executive Committee of the EBF; and chairman of the Board of Euribor, now known as the European Money Market Institute.
