After working in several sales functions in the banking industry Irene Meijer started her career in Compliance Risk Management in 2003. Meijer held several compliance positions at different divisions (local, regional and head office) in Europe and Asia before she became Global Head AML & Financial Economic Crime (FEC) for ING Bank in November 2010. Meijer and her team provide advice, set global standards and run training and awareness programs on FEC risks. She has a global oversight and a monitoring role related to the FEC control framework and implementation of related policies.
Meijer’s ambition is to support the bank by ensuring that it does the right thing, the right way, on a daily basis. She does this by teaming up with other non-financial risk functions, by being pro-active in identifying, measuring and managing the risks, by adapting to the changing regulatory framework and by providing tailored professional advice to business partners.
Meijer holds a master’s degree from the London University and a postgraduate executive master’s degree in Compliance from the Amsterdam University. She is a CAMS-certified member of the Benelux Chapter.
