Our management board is charged with developing and implementing our strategy as well as complying with legislation, regulations, risk management and auditing.
While the Management Board is accountable in practical terms, FMO remains a flat organization. Reporting lines are short and clear, facilitating supervision and control.
Appointed by our Supervisory Board, our Management Board is comprised of two directors:
Jürgen Rigterink was appointed CEO and Chairman of FMO’s Management Board in October 2016. Before that, he was Chief Risk & Finance Officer (2014 – 2016) and Chief Investment Officer (2008 –2014). With an investment portfolio of over EUR 9 billion, FMO is one of the largest bilateral private sector development banks worldwide. FMO creates access to a full range of financial products and services to private sector enterprises in developing markets with a focus on financial institutions, energy, agribusiness and private equity. Through Investment Management FMO offers institutional investors access to FMO’s expertise in responsible emerging market investing.
Jürgen started his career at Bank Brussels Lambert working in Brussels, Chicago and New York before joining ABN AMRO in 1997. He has since served in a variety of senior positions including Sector Head for Central & Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa. In 2005, Jurgen was appointed Chairman of the Management Board and Country Executive at ABN AMRO Bank Kazakhstan.
