Resolutions of the Supervisory Board:

  • From 1 January 2019, “Privatkundenbank” and “Unternehmerbank” will become two new Management Board areas of responsibility, reflecting the bank’s focus on growth
  • Mauro Maschio has been appointed to the Management Board responsible for “Privatkundenbank”, covering all private clients, small business and independent professionals as well as private banking customers

  • Romeo Collina, Deputy Chairman of the Management Board and COO, and Doris Tomanek, Member of the Human Capital Management Board, are leaving the bank at their own request when their contracts expire next year
  • Upon expiry of their contracts, the Management Board areas they were responsible for, COO and Human Capital, will fall under the CEO’s remit

Following the successful restructuring, UniCredit Bank Austria is now focusing on growth. In order to support and leverage on growth opportunities, the supervisory board has decided to reallocate responsibilities, assigning the “Privatkundenbank” and “Unternehmerbank” their own representatives at the Management Board. At the same time, the COO and Human Capital will no longer be represented at the Management board and will become the responsibility of the CEO.

“With Mauro Maschio and Susanne Wendler, we have appointed two outstanding managers from our own ranks for the two newly created Management Board functions; both of them have many years of broad management experience in their respective areas, giving them the expertise to implement our growth strategy in the best possible way”, states Erich Hampel, Chairman of the Supervisory Board. Mauro Maschio and Susanne Wendler will assume their roles on the UniCredit Bank Austria Management Board on 1 January 2019.

“In addition, I would like to thank Doris Tomanek, who has been responsible for Human Capital since 2006, including from 2010 as a member of the Management Board, and made a significant contribution to the further development of our company during this time. She has supported and driven the successful transformation of the bank in recent years. And I would like to thank Romeo Collina, who over the past three years has played a key role in shaping the reorganisation of our business model and the successful restructuring of our bank in his capacity as Chief Operating Officer.”

Upon expiry of their Management Board contracts, Romeo Collina (65) will leave the Management Board of UniCredit Bank Austria on 28 February 2019, and Doris Tomanek (62) will leave the Management Board on 6 May 2019, both at their own request.
