We are excited that Erika is joining MODO”, says Régine Feltkamp, head of the regulatory team at MODO. "Erika’s particular strength is that she combines academic thoroughness with practical and strategical insight in a field of expertise that - in this era of digital transformation (accelerated by the covid-crisis) - is increasingly essential to the businesses in the sectors we are supporting, also for their core business. I look forward to work together with Erika on the expanding support demands regarding digitalization and AI projects for the regulated industries I work in and especially for the financial sector and the energy sector.”
