Experience

ING
Sophis Application Administrator

Sophis Risk Management support @ ING Belgian Branch, Brussels

Jan 2018 - current

Helping out ING's Risk Management team around Sophis (Equity Derivatives) to successfully respect their delivery deadlines on the various regulatory projects, like FRTB Standardized Approach, EBA Stress testing and SIMM. My extensive VaR (Value-at-Risk) knowledge and mathematical background highly contribute in understanding the needs, preparing the various setups and effectively executing the runs. On a daily basis I'm interacting intensively with the systems (hardware, O/S and software) and Oracle database, given the stress that is applied on them.

In close relationship with the rest of the Sophis (derivatives) team and Market Risk Management, my primary task is providing high-level VaR and MI support to ING's branches all over the world (Belgium, Amsterdam, New York, Singapore, London).

Service Desk Coordinator @ AXA Belgium, Brussels

Sep 2013 - May 2015

Being promoted into a leading role, as coordinator I am responsible for the well-functioning of our Service Desk (a team of 4) and ensuring the 'liaison' between all involved stakeholders (customers, management,...). I try to actively participate in all discussions where our Service Desk is involved (rollouts, architectural decisions,...), to streamline the Service Desk in order to achieve a good level of customer satisfaction and to develop/install/maintain the necessary monitoring + scripts to tackle incidents before they happen or have an impact. As much as possible I participate in the daily Service Desk 'life' to maintain my technical skills and to know what happens 'on the floor'.

Support engineer @ AXA Belgium, Brussels

Mar 2011 - Aug 2013

Ensuring the day-to-day activities in a multilingual (EN/FR/NL) bank environment (HeadOffice = dealingroom + supporting departments). In our support team, we ensure that the Sophis bank application, MicroStrategy reporting software, QRM risk management framework and many other tools are available for our users (server side). I also support the users (Win XP and 7) with any problems they encounter in their daily activities. Part of this job is also server maintenance itself (Server 2003 and 2008 R2), troubleshooting performance issues (network, VMware, Oracle DB) and assisting management in security, architectural and good-practice IT maintenance decisions.
