Cora Pothoven

European leader compliance management

In her role as European account manager, Cora takes a client-driven approach: “I strongly believe that our clients in the same sector can learn a lot from each other. Working closely with our clients, I feel responsible for bringing about business continuity, focusing on compliance management, risk management and people management.”
