Liesbeth Sinke to become new CEO for Blauwtrust Groep and Quion

Liesbeth Sinke is the proposed new CEO for BTG and Quion. Liesbeth will be succeeding Ferdinand Veenman, who last week announced his resignation.

Veenman joined the organization, which includes market leading organizations Quion, DMPM, Romeo and De Hypotheker, in April 2022 after BlackFin Capital Partners took a majority stake. The company is grateful to Ferdinand Veenman for the successes he has achieved under complex market conditions. During his tenure, BTG welcomed Syntrus Achmea Real Estate & Finance as a new client, reaching the milestone of €100 billion in assets under administration. Finally, he was also able to strengthen the leadership team by attracting new talents at various levels.

With Liesbeth Sinke, the Rotterdam-based company adds an experienced leader to the team with a proven track record at renowned international banks, insurers and pension funds. In her career, she has held senior leadership positions at BinckBank, European credit insurance group Credendo GSR, NN, Marsh, Aon and MN services, among others.

Damien Lestang, partner at BlackFin Capital Partners, is looking forward to the collaboration: ”Liesbeth knows the dynamics of our market extremely well. Both from a management and a supervisory perspective. In combination with her open-hearted personality and connecting leadership style, we see her as the perfect candidate to boost our client services portfolio to an even higher level and unlock the potential of our group."

In the past two years, the group has invested massively in innovation and integrated Romeo's digital platform Accelerate into the branches of market leader De Hypotheker. The Zeeland-born Liesbeth Sinke is looking forward to pursuing the growth and transformation path that the group initiated: "I already had the pleasure of experiencing the high level of energy the people bring to their daily work at all Blauwtrust locations in the Netherlands and Tunisia. The fact that I can join this team and use my experience and expertise to give wings to the next phase of growth and transformation makes me eager to start.”  

The nomination is subject to regulatory approval by the AFM.
