Euroclear has appointed Rudi Collin as group chief transformation officer to lead a new unit focused on digital innovation and implementation. 

Collin brings decades of transformation, digital and finance experience to the role.  

He began his career as a pilot in the Belgian air force, before shifting his career to business in the late 1990s. 

After a stint at management consultancy, McKinsey, Collin joined Fortis in 2003, performing a variety of functions in finance, risk and operations.  

Following the acquisition of Fortis by BNP Paribas, Rudi was co-head of the integration team before leading a new corporate and investment banking unit.  

He held a variety of roles at BNP Paribas, including head of digital transformation for the corporate and investment bank and head of transformation for BNP Paribas Fortis.  

Since leaving BNP Paribas in 2018, Rudi co-founded two start-ups (an online retailer, KissPlanet, and a manufacturing company, Graine de Malice) which both have a focus on sustainability and environmental impact.
