Bank Austria Creditanstalt Job Notice: Stephan Knechtel heads up "Sourcing Austria & CEE"
Since 1 September, Stephan Knechtel, 44, has headed up the newly created "Sourcing Austria & CEE" division at Bank Austria Creditanstalt (BA-CA). Over the last one and a half years Knechtel has globalised and thus restructured procurements in Milan as the head of sourcing at UniCredit Italy. At the same time he also laid the foundations in Vienna for strategic sourcing management in CEE. He has therefore accomplished the integration of Global Procurement within UniCredit six months earlier than planned. In his new function, Knechtel will predominantly be focusing on the organisation and strategic management of procurements at all subsidiary banks throughout Central and Eastern Europe.
Stephan Knechtel has been working at BA-CA since 1998. He is married and has one daughter. His appointment underlines the importance of Vienna for UniCredit Group as a competence centre for Central and Eastern Europe. Knechtel will also be in charge of developing new sourcing markets for UniCredit Group.
