Becsei, CEO of leading lender OTPʼs mortgage and home savings banks, is replacing Mihály Patai, who was appointed a deputy governor of the National Bank of Hungary (MNB) in the spring.

The associationʼs board elected Radován Jelasity, chairman-CEO of Erste Bank Hungary, to fill Becseiʼs former position as deputy chairman.

Two new members were also elected to the associationʼs board: Éva Buza, CEO of credit guarantor Garantiqa, and József Vida, chairman-CEO of Takarékbank, the "central bank" for Hungaryʼs integrated network of savings cooperatives.
