Zdenek Romanek has been authorized by the National Bank of Romania and officially takes over his mandate as President and CEO of Raiffeisen Bank.
In November 2021, following an international selection process, the Austrian group Raiffeisen Bank International (RBI) appointed the Czech Zdenek Romanek as CEO of Raiffeisen Bank Romania. Romanek joined the Raiffeisen Bank team on February 1st, 2022 and takes office today, after The National Bank of Romania’s approval. As of this date, Steven van Groningen is ending his term as President and CEO, after 20 years at the helm of the bank.
”I am confident that banks can do much more for their customers if they make extensive use of existing technologies. Romania is an extremely interesting market, on which the Raiffeisen Group has been operating successfully for 25 years, and I am glad to be here and to be able to get involved in positioning Raiffeisen Bank for the future. I am already one month day by day with my new team and for this first stage, I have set myself the goal of understanding as much as possible of all our activities and staying close to the people. I think we need that, especially after these years of pandemics and in the difficult context resulted from the conflict in Ukraine. I thank Steven for all he has done in leading the bank”, said Zdenek Romanek, President and CEO of Raiffeisen Bank.
