Paul HigginsIndustry Lead for Banking and Financial Services in EMEA at Mendix
Paul joined Mendix from Commerzbank where he was responsible for setting up and running the Corporate Clients Platforms Executive area. Over a period of two and a half years, Paul coordinated the consolidation and agile transformation of what used to be four separate executive areas. He also had a lead role in developing and delivering the digital strategy for the executive area, as well as relevant parts of Commerzbank’s 2024 Strategy.
Prior to that, Paul set up the API Banking division as part of the management team. During the 3 years there, he ran the delivery of PSD2, created the Commerzbank Open Banking and Digital Ecosystems strategy, and spearheaded Commerzbank’s thought leadership on API Banking. The setup of agile delivery in the division was another area where he had significant impact – with API Banking leading the way as the “lighthouse” division of the agile transformation of Commerzbank’s delivery organization.
Before Commerzbank in 2016, he was engaged there as a management consultant on a large transformation project, as well as at other clients in Financial Services and Manufacturing.
