CIB Bank has announced the appointment of Tamás Győr as the head of its SME division, returning to the company from Erste Bank, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The 39-year-old Győr first arrived at CIB in 2001, working at the bankʼs corporate division after receiving his degree from Budapest Business School. He was appointed to lead the sales team seven years later. After the 2008 crisis, he first led the intensive and preventive client management area of the corporate risk management branch. Later on, he controlled SME claim management.
Győr joined Erste Bank in March 2011, becoming head of the corporate business development directorate in June 2015. He held the position until the end of 2018.
"We are allocating a special role for digital solutions in the service model, which we develop with regards to the partner SMEsʼ position in the industry, banking habits, and needs, in order to provide the most customized solutions in each phase of their life cycle," explained Győr.
According to Győr, the first wave of digital transformation affects internal processes the most, improving their efficiency. In the next steps, SME clients will increasingly be able to utilize the advantages of digitalization.
"Tamásʼs most important task is building a service model, with the key element being able to give advice as experts in questions that concern our clients the most, such as the current state of the labor market and the generation shift, and to be able to offer relevant banking solutions in such situations," noted CIB Bank Deputy CEO Balázs Szabó.
