Core banking provider Ohpen has engaged Leni Boeren to take office as Chair of the Supervisory Board. Alongside Leonard van Loon (NPM Capital) and Michel Vrolijk (Amerborgh), she will supervise the company's international expansion, and specifically the introduction of Ohpen's new cloud-native combined platform for savings, investing and loans. Boeren will continue to hold her non-executive board positions at Air-France, KLM and Tata Steel Nederland.

Boeren has more than twenty years of board experience, among others in the Executive Boards of Euronext Amsterdam, the Dutch Fund and Asset Management Association (DUFAS), Robeco Group and Van LandschotKempen. In 2011, Robeco became Ohpen's first client. As the company's COO at the time, Boeren played an important role in obtaining the approval of Dutch central bank DNB for the use of Amazon Web Services (AWS) to store financial data.

Mathijs Aler, CEO of Ohpen, calls Boeren 'a rare powerhouse in the world of Dutch Supervisory Boards.' Aler: "She has a unique combination of experience in the financial sector, a focus on technology and operations, as well as holding Executive and Supervisory Board positions at a multinational corporation. Leni was the first to give us a chance, so we have witnessed from up close her admirable ability to take calculated risks and stimulate innovation, while never losing sight of the customer experience. We're certain that she will be of enormous value to Ohpen and its clients."

According to Boeren, Ohpen has always been a leader in innovation: "When I first met Ohpen ten years ago, I knew that this unique cloud-based platform would be the future. Since then, we've seen more and more companies realize the advantages of using a cloud-native core banking provider. The changes in this market segment, combined with the acquisition of Davinci last year, makes this the ideal time to shake up the market with a combined cloud-native platform for savings, investments and loans. I was excited to work with Ohpen back then, but even more excited today to see how Ohpen will empower innovative financial institutions in the coming years.

Ohpen aims to further strengthen its Supervisory Board in the near future with a fourth member with in-depth technical knowledge and experience.
