Treasury management systems often don’t function well if you don’t have the basics in place.
That’s the opinion of this week’s guest on The Treasury Career Corner.
Bart Hendriks, Head of Global Treasury Operations and Inhouse Bank Management at CEVA Logistics, explains why companies that grow very fast and, in turn, grow their treasury teams very fast often lack some basic strategies or policies to reach their potential.
Plus, in this episode, Bart discusses his career to date, how he got started in treasury and his passion for lecturing.
Bart Hendriks is responsible for global treasury operations and in-house bank management within the CEVA Group.
He started his career in corporate banking and leverage finance with the likes of KBC Banking and GE Capital either side of a job in treasury recruitment with Michael Page International.
In 2009, he moved to corporate treasury where he worked for several global companies with increasing management responsibilities. In addition to this, he is a lecturer at the Vrije University in Amsterdam, teaching Treasury Management & Organization.
Bart holds a Masters in Economics from Maastricht University and an MBA for Solvay Business School.
