Wim Scherpenhuijsen Rom Death | Obituary – Former ING CEO Wim Scherpenhuijsen Rom sadly passed away on 31 July 2020. In the early 80s, Wim Scherpenhuijsen Rom, then the chairman of NMB Bank, was convinced that Europe would one day have a single currency which would lead to the creation of much larger financial companies in Europe.
The choice was simple: either be taken over or initiate mergers to achieve a larger scale.
