ING Life chief executive Naomi Ballantyne is set to move on to new ventures within the next few months.
Mrs Ballantyne will stay to hand over the helm of ING Life to a new boss and then will investigate her ideas for new businesses.
Mrs Ballantyne’s last start-up was insurance company Club Life, bought by ING in early 2004.
“What I most enjoy is building companies,” she said. She was more impatient with corporate procedures such as board sign-off and reporting requirements.
Mrs Ballantyne said she always knew that her entrepreneurial side would be ready for new pastures after selling Club Life.
But ING proved to be such a good parent for the company that it took five years for her to get to the point of wanting to leave.
