February 3, 2020

Petr Brunclík, who was appointed member of the NLB Management Board and Chief Operating Officer (COO) by the NLB Supervisory Board in November 2019, joined NLB d.d. today. He will begin his five-year term of office on the day he receives consent from the ECB. Until then he will perform the functions of the Assistant to the Management Board of the NLB.

The new COO will be responsible for IT, operations, procurement, and corporate real estate management departments. He is joining NLB d.d. during its intense digital and IT transformation, as well as numerous challenges being set forth to the banking sector by various fintech companies, and continuing calls to improve customer experience.

“I look forward of this opportunity and the tasks that await us. Some of them, such as revising and simplifying IT architecture according to latest best practices, and streamlining, automating and digitizing processes to minimize costs, are purely IT by nature. On the other hand, the rest are more business oriented in order to secure business and IT alignment, for example focusing on a mobile first approach and implementing the best online experience for customers not only in Slovenia but in all the countries where NLB Group operates,” said Petr Brunclik.
“On behalf of the Management Board I would like to welcome our new colleague. We are looking forward of working with him, learn from his knowledge and experience and face the challenges of digital and IT transformation together,” said Blaž Brodnjak, President of the NLB Management Board.

Petr Brunclík (1979) has almost 20 years of diverse banking, business, customer service, process improvement, online, and technology experience. He majored in information technologies and applied informatics at the University of Economics in Prague. He began his career in 2001 as a Head of Promotion at the Mironet Group, a Czech hardware and computer systems distributor. From there he moved on to GE Money Bank (6/2003), which was later (in May 2016) rebranded to MONETA Money Bank. For the next 15 years he held various positions including IT Manager for eBusiness Applications (2/2007), and later Senior IT Manager for Distribution Channels (3/2009), then Shared Service Center Director (1/2012), and lastly Chief Shared Services Officer (COO) (6/2013), responsible amongst other fields for a call center, customer service, and business process support.
