The Supervisory Board of PKO Bank Polski appointed Jan Emeryk Rościszewski President of the Bank's Management Board on the condition of seeking the consent of the Polish Financial Supervision Authority. Until such consent has been secured, Jan Emeryk Rościszewski will manage the work of the management board of PKO Bank Polski. Jan Emeryk Rościszewski has been working for PKO Bank Polski since 2006; he has managed the Retail Market Segment and supervised the capital group companies. The Supervisory Board also appointed Marcin Eckert to the position of vice-president of the management board of Bank. Both decisions of the Bank’s Supervisory Board entered into force as of the date of their adoption, i.e. on 8 June 2021.
I feel greatly distinguished and at the same time challenged. I accept the appointment with humility and awareness of the huge liability that is related to managing an organisation of such scale. In the nearest perspective, we will focus on completing the current strategy and working out the next one. Continuation of digitisation is the proper path that the Bank should follow,”
said Jan Emeryk Rościszewski, Vice-resident of the Management Board of PKO Bank Polski, managing the work of the Management Board.
