The Supervisory Board of NLB d.d. and Petr Brunclík, member of the Management Board and chief operating officer (COO), agreed on the termination of office with effect on 30 June 2021. The decision was brought about by personal reasons, which the Supervisory Board understood. As of 22 April 2021, his tasks will be taken over by other members of the NLB d.d. Management Board.
Petr Brunclík joined NLB d.d. in February last year on the brink of the Covid-19 pandemic that brought many challenges, especially in the field of IT. Despite the demanding circumstances, the bank has made some very important strategic development shifts during this period. In the last year, NLB delivered crucial functionalities that enabled online contracting of products, strengthened the stability of its systems, and enhanced internal capabilities to enable employees working from home, therefore taking care of their wellbeing. The bank has also developed new IT strategy and started IT transformation, while important steps toward enhancing IT capabilities were also made in the region.
The Supervisory Board thanked Mr Brunclík for his contribution to bank’s performance and wished him every success in his further career. It pointed out that the bank’s strategy in this area remains unchanged: the Group’s vision is to enable the best client and employee experience through reliable, effective, secure, accessible and scalable IT solutions; and the bank’s mission is to build the best digital bank and IT team in South-eastern European region. All projects of the bank and the NLB Group, including the integration of systems in Serbia, are therefore progressing smoothly in accordance with the planned timeline.
