Kranebitter takes over at Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank

For those who follow such things closely, there’s a new guy in charge at Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank. The outoing Franz Pinkl posted a letter last month on the company’s website, while the announcement of the new CEO, Gottwald Kranebitter, has now been put up. Kranebitter set up the Bratislava office of KPMG back in the 1990’s and has been consulting for Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank since the end of last year.

Gottwald Kranebitter succeeds Franz Pinkl as Chairman of the Executive Board of Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank International AG. The Executive Board will be reduced in size, from 5 members down to 4. Wolfgang Edelmüller has been recruited as Vice Chairman of the Executive Board and Chief Risk Officer. Johannes Proksch will in future be responsible for the group’s finances. The Chief Operating Officer position will be filled at a later point.
