Anna Macaláková becomes J&T Bank director

12. August 2015

Anna Macaláková is Slovak J&T branch director since 12th August 2015, who had worked as a procurator and chairperson of Komfort and Magnus client segments. In her new position she replaced Andrej Zaťko, who has accepted a new professional challenge in becoming Post Bank Managing Director and Chairman of the Board of Directors. Since this date, there have also been other personnel changes.

Leading a private bank, in today’s online world, is a big challenge, which will be an important role in its future development, too. I am taking-over J&T Bank in an excellent state from the financial results point of view, number of clients, as well as volume of administered assets – all this thanks to the previous management. In the future, my priority will be to provide services oriented at client needs. As a bank we will continue to focus on investments, which in the autumn will widen into new opportunities,’ observes Anna Macaláková, J&T Bank Director.

The bank’s new procurators are now Jozef Šimovčík, director of the Operation Division, and Miloslav Čomaj, former sales director for the Corporate Clients segment, who will also become a director of private banking. In this position he will replace Katarína Sásiková.

Andrej Zaťko worked at J&T Bank since its establishment. He set up its long-term strategy, and built up a strong position as an expert in property investment and administration for private clientele and higher mid-management. In the last 2.5 years under his leadership the bank doubled its volume of administered clients’ assets to almost EUR 2 billion, and J&T Banka became one of the most dynamically-growing banks in the Slovak market.
