As Chief Innovation Officer, Patrick de Neef is responsible for the digital transformation of DNB’s supervisory divisions. This transformation requires innovation in terms of resources, attitudes and mindsets. From new data architecture to the straight through processing of all supervisory processes and, ultimately, the digital competences needed to derive maximum benefit from them. Patrick is also responsible for DNB’s digital platform that enables cooperation with the sector: the iForum. DNB’s overall digital innovation agenda, which includes central bank tasks and resolution, is driven by the DNB Digital Agenda Board, which Patrick chairs.
After starting his career at one of the major Dutch banks, Patrick made the switch to DNB in 2007, dealing in particular with banking supervision. He then moved into digitalisation, with a specific focus on European banking supervision under the ECB’s Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM) and the European Banking Authority (EBA).
