Jan Winkler appointed as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Expobank CZ

Jan Winkler, who has been a member of the Board of Directors of Expobank CZ since January 2020, has become its new chairman with effect from 20 September 2022. Jan Winkler has extensive managerial experience in the financial field. For example, he previously worked as a Change Leadership Director at Erste Group's Banca Comerciala Romana, the largest retail bank in Romania. Prior to that, he had worked as a senior partner or director in international consulting companies Accenture, A. T. Kearney and Deloitte. He returns as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Expobank CZ after four months during which the bank was led by Petr Krumphanzl. He successfully completed its sale to Banka CREDITAS and is leaving Expobank CZ.

Jan Winkler, as the new Chairman of the Board of Directors of Expobank CZ, will focus primarily on the transformation of Expobank CZ stemming from the change of ownership. His role will also be to further strengthen the bank's position in the field of digital servicing of retail clients using existing and brand new flagship products and innovative services.

"I am delighted that, with the support of the new Czech owner, I can enter a period with the bank that will bring previously unthinkable opportunities for rapid growth and development of our bank. This would not have been possible without the prior successful completion of its sale. I would like to thank my predecessor Petr Krumphanzl, who managed this challenging task," said Jan Winkler, the new Chairman of the Board of Directors of Expobank CZ.

The Board of Directors of Expobank CZ currently consists of Jan Winkler (Chairman), Martin Kubíček (Member) and Martin Provazník (Member).
