This role is really focused on using new methods with cross functional teams.”

Rebecca Gatto, Regulatory Change Expert: “Although RC&A is a relatively new team, there is already a lot that we can be proud of. We have set course to reach a target state in which regulatory adherence is embedded in the very fabric of our organization, by defining a framework leading to adherence by design. It’s exciting to work on improvements that are relevant for the entire Rabobank Group and to know that the solutions we are delivering will help colleagues throughout the bank deal with a complex regulatory landscape.”
