Aleksandar Konishkov will head the regional center 'Severo-Zapadny' from 15th September 2008.
«The priority tasks for the bank in our region is further regional expansion and a significant increase in our presence on the markets that we are currently in. It is important to note that the bank is planning to increase its credit portfolio, and not only as a result of our work on markets that are know to us, but also as a result in the increase in our regional presence. Regional expansion for us means further progress in the retail sector, which would not be possible without the operational presence of the bank, and also the development of a lending program for small and medium-sized businesses. By the end of this year Raiffeisen will be represented in 5 regions in the northwest. This will enable us to offer our services not only to large corporate clients, for whom the operational presence of the bank is not a deciding factor. Besides this, our important task is to maintain the high level of service for corporate and retail clients that Raiffeisen bank is known for,» noted Aleksandar Konishkov
