Director Finance: Katie Slipper

‘Inspiring journeys have always appealed to me, and Schiphol is where many journeys start. Professionally, my journey as Risk and Audit Director engages with the entire company to ensure that we have an integrated and coherent approach to identifying and managing our risks. From an audit perspective, we contribute to Schiphol being a learning organisation and to improving control processes. My personal journey involves a lot of travelling – enjoying the thrill of being in a totally different culture after just a few or many hours in the plane. That's really extraordinary. Schiphol provides me with that same feeling on a daily basis. It's a place where various cultures are brought together and which, very importantly, allows me to return quickly and easily to my home city of London whenever I wish.’
