Johannes Henricus Maria (Jan) Hommen is a Dutch businessman. He was Chairman of the Board of the multinational banking and financial services corporation ING Group from 2009 to 2013. He held the same position at the accounting corporation KPMG between 2014 and 2015. From 2018, he is senior advisor for BlackRock Netherlands.[1]

Hommen started his career at LIPS Aluminum BV, a subsidiary of LIPS Scheepsschroef BV in Drunen and ELKEM and Alcoa. After a long period with various positions at the American aluminum group Alcoa, Hommen became a member of the board of Philips in 1997 as Chief Financial Officer. He remained CFO there until 2005, after which he became a member of the Supervisory Board of the ING Group and Reed Elsevier, among others.

On 27 January 2009, he succeeded Michel Tilmant as CEO of the ING Group, which had been in deep trouble due to the credit crisis.[2] In his first year, Hommen waived salary payments until a new remuneration policy was adopted.[3] For 2010, Hommen received a bonus of 1.25 million euros on top of his fixed salary of 1.35 million euros. ING received a lot of criticism because of this decision, because the bank had still not repaid the state aid. Hommen and his fellow directors then decided to waive the bonus.[4]

On May 26, 2014, it was announced that he would take up the position of chairman of the board of the much troubled KPMG as of June 14. He was appointed for a term of up to four years, or until a suitable successor was found. Hommen also carried out reorganizations at KPMG and laid the foundation for a new corporat e culture. He was succeeded by Stephanie Hottenhuis (1965), chairman of the board of directors at KPMG Netherlands since August 2018.

When he left ING , Jan Hommen was promoted to Commander in the Order of Orange-Nassau. on 1 October 2013. He became Commander thanks to “the exceptional contribution to the continuity of ING as an international company and the efforts to adapt the financial sector after the financial crisis of 2008”, according to the Ministry of Finance.[7]
