Jeroen Dijst will succeed Martijn Wissels, whose term of appointment will expire on 1 November 2016. Martijn Wissels was appointed Director of Risk Management of SNS REAAL in November 2013. On 1 July 2014, he was also appointed member of the Board of Directors of SNS Bank as CRO. Due to Martijn Wissels’ illness, this position was filled by Jeroen Dijst as of 1 September 2015. Now that Dijst has been appointed Managing Director , Wissels will step down as per the same date.

“We are very grateful to Martijn Wissels for the work he has done in relation to the disentanglement of SNS Bank from the SNS REAAL organisation, in particular with respect to setting up and improving an independent risk management organisation. Under his leadership, a solid foundation for the future has been laid.

We have found in Jeroen Dijst an excellent successor for the role of CRO. He is familiar with the organisation and the right person to contribute to the execution of the strategy of our bank”, says Jan van Rutte, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of SNS Bank.
