Fortis Bank has taken on Camiel de Leeuw as product manager, SCF – Global Commodities Group, reporting to Carl Shipman head of structured commodity finance (SCF).

De Leeuw joins from ABN Amro where he was a product manager with the structured inventory products group. The move marks a change of direction for de Leeuw within the commodities sector as he will no longer be concentrating on the inventory finance side of the business but instead “concentrate on contributing to Fortis’ quest to be one of the top client-focused structuring banks,” claims the bank. He was with ABN Amro for eight years.

Also, Carola Liori, senior account manager, has moved from the agri commodities team to the metals and steel team.
