What are the specialties of this talent? 
Strong finance and accounting knowledge, excellent technical skills and the right mindset are qualities which are considered fundamental for every M&A professional. However, his ability to process and translate large amounts of data – often under a tremendous amount of pressure – into information which is valuable for all stakeholders make Jesse a true asset to our firm, his colleagues as well as our clients, and valuable for stakeholders on deals he is working on. Jesse demonstrates that he masters both quantitative as well as the qualitative qualities far beyond what one would expect from someone with his tenure, meaning that, both from a technical and a commercial perspective he displays a very strong performance – something which is rare at this level in an organisation. His strong social skills and ability to explain complex matters in easy to understand language makes him loved not only within ING but also with our clients. These skills also make him an allround professional who can excel in public transactions (such as VolkerWessels, ICT Group), founder-led deals (Topicus),corporate transactions (Wasco, Euromais) as well as PE-led processes (Squla, Fabory, Outdoor Life Group and Infradata). 
How does the talent distinguish itself from its peers? 
The intrinsic motivation to learn and develop and his devotion to be the best and to deliver the best is truly what drives the success of Jesse Voorburgh. With his unprecedented learning curve and his combination of both strong technical and social skills make him a valued discussion partner at management and even supervisory board level of our country’s largest companies. Heearns trust by working diligently and (at least as important) by communicating in a pleasant, structured and comprehensive way. Even when under enormous time pressure Jesse continues to deliver in time, and keeps up a very positive mindset enthusing his environment. This combination of skills at this stage in his career distinguish him from his peers and offers a good example of an excelling young M&A banker. 
What impact does the talent have within the organization?  
Throughout all layers of the organisation people want to work with/for him, because of his talents and likeability. From a personality perspective and output standards, Jesse is an inspiration to the team. He has a lot of joy in his work which you see reflected in his quality of output, his strive to perfection and especially how he educates colleagues that are his juniors. Regardless the hour of the day and the workload he has to deal with himself, Jesse will always take the time to educate co-associates, analysts, trainees and interns. He forms a spill in the web in our department by making sure he is updated on everybody’s deals and workloads, and importantly their personal situations as well. He will make sure every single person in the team feels he/she part of and belongs to the team. 

What impact does the talent have outside the organization?  
Jesse is also a much appreciated person outside of ING, from clients and ING partners to lawyers and other advisors. The reason for this can be seen from both a content and social perspective. He leaves a positive impression as a result of his genuine interest in people and their personal story and his well-developed ability to tailor his communication style to each different person. Subsequently topped off with his strong technical skills, financial knowledge and creative insights. 
To what extent does the talent make the difference to clients?  
Also with clients, Jesse distinguishes himself from his peers through his ability to connect with clients from all seniority levels, his dedication to a project/client and the high quality of his work. His excelling combination of technical skills, creative way of offering solutions, ability to take into account the view of alle stakeholders, commercial sense and content driven decision making make him a valuable addition to every deal team and an appreciated team member by clients. As such, Jesse is seen as a very good advertisement for our organisation. 
Why does the talent deserve this nomination? 
Jesse deserves a nomination for the Young M&A talent award as he is seen as a role model for young M&A professionals, both within and outside ING. The impact he has on the organisation, his colleagues, our clients and other stakeholders should be acknowledged on a broader platform. He is truly a great person to work with, a professional that leaves a positive impression everywhere he goes and he gets deals done…a great advertisement for the field of M&A and as such the Young M&A talent of 2021.
