Björn Meltzer new acting head of the business area Large Corporates & Institutions in Swedbank
In 2020, Swedbank has updated the strategic direction. The many changes that the financial industry is undergoing globally are increasing the demand for development. The bank’s work is entering a new phase that includes management changes in the business area Large Corporates & Institutions, where Björn Meltzer will now serve as acting head.
“We have updated the strategic direction for Swedbank as a whole,” says Jens Henriksson President and CEO of Swedbank. “Now I want to see a new leadership that can steer Large Corporates & Institutions into the future.”
Ola Laurin will step down as the current head of Large Corporates & Institutions and will be at the disposal of the CEO until he leaves the bank.
“I want to thank Ola Laurin for the work he has done to lead the business area to where it is today. His efforts for the bank in collaboration with Kepler Chevreux have been important to generating great customer value and giving the bank a strong position in green bonds,” says Jens Henriksson.
Björn Meltzer has until today been Chief Financial Officer within Large Corporates & Institutions. The recruitment of a permanent head will now begin.
