State Street has appointed its Edinburgh chief operating officer to head State Street Global Services in the Netherlands.
In his new role Pieter De Jong will report to Willie Slattery, head of the Global Services business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (Emea).
De Jong takes over from Joachim Sierig who was actively involved in establishing the new State Street Bank Amsterdam branch. Joachim Sierig has decided to pursue new opportunities outside of State Street.
De Jong has worked in the industry for over 30 years and has been with State Street since 2004. He was chief operating officer for State Street’s Edinburgh office for the last three years and, prior to this, he was managing director for State Street in South Africa.
Before joining State Street, De Jong was a senior operations manager for ABN Amro Asset Management in the Netherlands.
Slattery says the appointment will ensure State Street’s Dutch presence will continue to grow.
State Street Corporation has $28.5 trillion (€25.2 trillion) in assets under custody and administration and $2.4 trillion in assets under management as of March 31, 2015.
