Group CFO Heikki Ilkka to leave Nordea

Heikki Ilkka, Group CFO and Head of Group Finance & Treasury, has decided to leave Nordea to return to auditing and re-join EY as a partner. Heikki has been with Nordea since April 2015 and has since January 2016 held the position of Group CFO. Heikki will end his employment with Nordea by the end of the first quarter 2018.

- It is never easy to see senior and trusted colleagues leave us. Heikki has contributed significantly to the Finance transformation and leaves a strong team that I am confident will be able to deliver on our very ambitious agenda, says Casper von Koskull, Nordea’s Group CEO.

A process to identify a new Group CFO for Nordea Bank AB (publ) has been initiated.
