Governance.com announces the appointment of Georges Bock to its executive committee as Chief Strategist. Georges has 27 years of international experience at KPMG, leading the firm as Managing Partner from 2012 to 2016. His roles to date have been wide-ranging, both in terms of expertise and geography, running from KPMG Head of Banking and KPMG Head of Tax on a national level, as well as Global Chair of the KPMG Funds Tax Network and Global Financial Services Tax Digital Strategy Lead on an international level.
As Chief Strategist, Georges Bock will build upon the growing international recognition of Governance.com and lead strategic initiatives such as international expansion, product offering extension and partnership building.
CEO Bert Boerman comments on the appointment: “I am extremely excited that George has joined our team. We are growing our operations and we are onboarding new customers at an accelerated pace. In addition, we are about to launch a suite of plug-and-play governance solutions for regulated and unregulated business and will open new offices abroad in Q1 2019. With so much on our agenda, we needed to reinforce our team with an expert who knows how to scale the business while focusing on our growing international customer base. Georges is a perfect fit.”
Georges Bock adds: “Over the past four years, I’ve witnessed Governance.com grow exponentially, from relative obscurity in 2014 to seriously impressive achievements in 2018. The firm has not only featured in prestigious rankings like The Fintech 50 and European RegTech, it has also broadened its customer base to onboard leading players in the financial industry.”
“My prediction for the future is that Governance.com will soon be the Android or IOS of governance and complex data management — the technology of reference for finance firms. I am excited to join Bert and Rob’s dynamic team – to drive the company’s expansion into international markets and hone its product offerings. I cannot dream of a more engaging project than helping this company, brimming with ambition and talent, to realise its full potential.”
