Boydens Leadership Series features Robecos Leni Boeren
In the new issue of the Boyden Leadership Series, Ms. Boeren discusses changes in the financial services industry, combating cybersecurity threats, why diversity extends beyond gender, senior executives as role models, and the impact of younger generations in the workplace.
The interview also includes a sidebar discussion with Joost Goudsmit, Managing Partner of Boyden Netherlands, and his view on today’s corporate leaders.
“Leni’s leadership has positively impacted Robeco in light of the significant changes the global financial services industry has undergone in recent years,” said Mr. Goudsmit. “Her ability to be agile, while still focusing on Robeco’s mission for company growth and achieving their financial objectives, are accomplishments to be emulated by other leaders.”
