AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, September 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Chris van Lint named Chief Risk Officer

After almost eight years with Atradius, Delfin Rueda, Chief Financial and Risk Officer, has decided to leave Atradius at the end of October to pursue a professional challenge with another organization. Chris van Lint has been named Chief Risk Officer, pending approval by the Dutch National Bank. A successor for the position of Chief Financial Officer has not yet been named.

Chris van Lint, 52, joined Atradius in 1983 and has served in a number of risk management positions over his 29 years of credit risk management with the company. From 2002 to 2006, he served Atradius as Director of Risk Services NL & Nordic, and has since 2006 been the Director of Group Risk Management. In this role, Mr. van Lint has led the development and maintenance of Atradius' Economic Capital models, group pricing models and  buyer risk ratings, and has managed the company's operational risk.

Isidoro Unda, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Atradius, commented; "Since joining Atradius' Management Board in 2005 Delfin has led the finance and risk organizations through many changes that have improved our corporate governance, reporting, risk management, controls, efficiency and overall performance. Thanks to Delfin's leadership, we are now in a stronger position to move forward towards achieving our growth goals. We wish him success."

Unda continued; "While at this time we can not announce a new CFO, we have named Chris van Lint to the position of CRO. Chris has been with the organization for many years and has a broad and in depth understanding of the credit risk environment across our geographic network. He has been instrumental in preparing Atradius for the upcoming Solvency II requirements. His experience has, in his current position, and will even more so in his new role, lead us through the changing economic conditions across the world."
