Jon Locke is an experienced international banker, who will serve as Chief Risk Officer. The Supervisory Board believes that his knowledge, skills and experience will significantly contribute to the further development of Nova KBM and its group, as well as the successful work of the Nova KBM Management Board, now consisting of Robert Senica as the President and Sabina Župec Kranjc as the Member. Given that the Supervisory Board also appointed Josef Gröblacher in July who will serve as Chief Operating Officer (subject to approval by the ECB), the Nova KBM Management Board will soon have four members.
