Welcome to the new director of Marketing & Communications department - 13/05/2013DOWNLOAD
Virginie Michielsen joined Deloitte Luxembourg on 15 April as a director to lead the Marketing & Communications department.
In her role and together with the existing teams, Virginie will focus on further developing the communication activities of the firm internally and externally, drawing on her experience as former Head of Corporate Communication & Relations at ING Bank in Brussels. At ING, she was responsible for a team of 50 people in charge, amongst others, of the external and internal communication of the bank, as well as for corporate sponsoring, events and Corporate Social Responsibility.
Yves Francis, Managing Partner of Deloitte Luxembourg, commented: “In the frame of our Clients & Markets and Marketing & Communication activities led by Vincent Gouverneur, we are constantly striving to communicate transparently towards our clients, people and various stakeholders that shape our business environment. Significant achievements have already been accomplished in the last years, but we need to continue focusing our efforts. Virginie will help us further strengthen our pool of competencies in this field.”
During her career at ING of more than 20 years and previous to her activities in the communication field, Virginie occupied several senior positions within ING Belgium and the Netherlands in the areas of commercial and wholesale banking with worldwide responsibilities. This allowed her not only to gain extensive knowledge of the banking business but also in client relationship, cross cultural people management and project management.
Furthermore, Virginie is already very familiar with Luxembourg through her husband Rik Vandenberghe, former CEO of ING Luxembourg, who recently was appointed as CEO of ING Belgium.
