Ordina and the financial sector: two peas in a pod. On a daily basis, there are hundreds of Ordina employees working at Belgian, Dutch and Luxembourg banks, insurance companies, leasing companies and payroll services providers. And not all these men and women are IT people. Greetje Vansteenbeeck is an expert in credit and change management who worked in banks for 28 years. She now is a business consultant and competence and practice lead at Ordina. “The switch was an excellent decision,” she says enthusiastically.
“Most of the time, I actually feel like a translator or an interpreter,” Greetje laughs. “Throughout my career, I’ve been trying to translate business needs for IT people – and vice versa.” Her “conciliatory” approach may well have something to do with her first job as a teacher. After just one year in education, she left the classroom for the banking sector, which suited her much better. Between 1989 and 2017 she successively worked for AXA and Argenta.
