Alpha Bank on Thursday announced that Vasilios Psaltis, current Chief Financial Officer and managing director of the bank, will take over as new Chief Executive Officer after the departure of Dimitrios Mantzounis. The bank said the new CEO will take over his post from January 2, 2019.

The new CEO, with a 20-year experience in executive positions in banks in Greece and abroad, will lead the bank together with the rest of the management team and Alpha Bank's human resources to the next day of the Greek banking system, after completion of the adjustment programmes and the exit from the 10-year crisis which had severe impact on the domestic banking system.
