Sweden’s Handelsbanken has continued its stream of announcements about senior management changes in its organisation – including a new role for its acting head of Handelsbanken Markets & Asset Mangement
Pål Bergström has been appointed from his Markets & Asset Management role to acting chief compliance officer at the group, and as a result will be a member of the senior management team. The appointment takes effect 9 September, as does the appointment of Rolf Marquardt as acting CFO, and who previously was chief compliance officer.
Marquardt succeeds Ulf Riese, who is taking up the role of senior advisor, reporting directly to the group CEO. He also takes on the role starting 9 September.
This follows the announcement the previous day that Michael Broom was appointed chief credit officer , subject to regulatory approval, at Handelsbanken UK – the biggest non-Nordic market served by Handelsbanken. Previously, Broom headed Handelsbanken South West UK.
Taking over that role is Chris Teasdale, who previously was responsible as area manager at Handelsbanken Yorkshire & North East UK. Handelsbanken claims over 200 branches across the UK offering decentralised universal banking.
Handelsbanken Fonder, the fund company, is listed as a subsidiary of the Handelsbanken group. It claims AUM of some SEK400bn (€54bn) across about 100 funds.
