Klaus Windheuser has been appointed President-CEO of Commerzbank in Budapest, as of November 1, and will replace András Kozma, who is leaving the bank after eight years, according to an announcement issued today.

Windheuser’s main task will be to further develop the bank’s business sector activities in Hungary, the announcement said.

Windheuser has worked with Commerzbank since 1988. After receiving his degree, he filled in various positions at Commerzbank AG in the field of crediting. In 2007 he became the leader of Commerzbank AG’s residential client segment responsible for risk and credit transactions.

“I am happy that our colleague Klaus Windheuser is joining us at our international branch, with serious professional experience in crediting and business banking,” Sven Gohlke, Regional Manager Europe at Commerzbank AG, said. “I am thankful for András Kozma’s years-long cooperation, he has contributed to the establishment of the bank’s business strategy in Hungary,” he added.

Commerzbank has been present in Hungary since 1993. Beyond their headquarters in Budapest, the bank is present in three other cities in Hungary: Kecskemét, Miskolc and Győr.
