André ten Damme helps financial institutions with responses to current social issues, often driven by new regulations. This calls for changes – from innovations to improved processes.
He studied computer science at the University of Twente, after which he took the registered controller program at the Free University of Amsterdam. He first joined EY at the age of 24, then came back on board in 2013. In between, he served as director of various pension funds, as a supervisory director, and as CFO/administrator for a pension provider, and for an international IT and consultancy organization.
“The financial sector can no longer afford transgressions. This is partly because there are many more stakeholders than just shareholders. This is why I am happy to contribute to new business models based on institutions that respect their license to operate.”
How André is building a better working world
“It was from this perspective that I experienced the financial crisis first-hand. I wanted to use that experience for the good of the entire sector, which was the biggest driving force behind my return to EY. I genuinely believe in a stable, solid financial sector. This would benefit society as a whole.”
