The new president-CEO has extensive experience and broad expertise across Commerzbank’s corporate banking. He joined the bank in 1982, working in various corporate banking positions, in Germany, the United States, Russia, China, and Japan. Before his current role, he acted as country-CEO of Commerzbank AG Iberia in Madrid with responsibility for Spain and Portugal.

"I am very glad to have engaged Andreas a colleague with extensive knowledge in corporate banking for our Hungarian subsidiary," says Sven Gohlke, regional board member of Commerzbank for Central and Northern Europe and chairman of the supervisory board. "We are pleased that we can continue the growth trajectory of Hungary together. We wish him every success and a positive start."

He has been a driver of the outstanding development of Commerzbank Zrt. in recent years. I wish him all the best in the next stage of his career," adds Gohlke.
